A project on a triangular-shaped piece of land on the east end of the H Street Corridor received support from ANC 6A on Thursday night. Plans for 1401 Florida Avenue NE (map) include 28 units, down from the 34 units originally proposed. Mehari Sequar is the developer on the project, which is designed by PGN Architects and is located near the Argonaut.
The 28 units include 16 larger two-bedrooms, and the fifth and sixth floor will house duplex units, according to Jeff Goins of PGN. The units have been reduced and the top floor set back since the developer first started working with the ANC.

The project is seeking approval from the Board of Zoning Adjustment for a number of issues: The maximum permitted residential lot occupancy for the site is 80 percent; the developer wants to build to 99 percent, according to the filings. They also want to build to 75 feet; the maximum allowable height is 70 feet. Finally, though 29 parking spaces are required for the development, the developer says they are unable to provide any parking on the property due to its odd layout.
