Another church redevelopment is on the boards in DC.
Westminster Presbyterian Church is moving forward with a zoning application for a map amendment and planned-unit development (PUD) enabling the church to redevelop its site at 400 Eye Street SW (map). The resulting 90 foot-tall mixed-use building would include 18,500 square feet of ground-floor space for the church's facilities, and separate volumes above for 99 market-rate units and 123 senior affordable units. Development partners include Bozzuto Development, Bozzuto Homes, and Westminster Community Partners.
The map amendment would rezone the site from R-3 (rowhouse) zoning to MU-2 (transitional mixed-use). As designed by KGD Architecture, the building will include green roof space with native plants on multiple levels, and a "back-lit vertical embellishment of channel glass" adorning the corner.
The senior units would be for households earning up to 50 and 60% of median family income, and the unit mix across both sides of the building would span from studios to two-bedrooms. The building would also include a below-grade parking level with 60 vehicular and 76 long-term bicycle spaces.
The site was previously included as a build-first site in potential redevelopment plans for nearby public housing community Greenleaf Gardens; the latest proposal was presented at February's ANC 6D meeting.
