34-Unit Mixed-Use Building Planned for H Street's East End: Figure 1

The eastern end of H Street is next.

A developer wants to construct a mixed-use building at 1401 Florida Avenue NE (map), a part of the corridor that has so far seen less development amid the western end’s building boom. (The Flats at Atlas development is an exception in terms of recent large-scale development.)

In plans submitted to the Board of Zoning Adjustment on Monday night, one of the developers, Mehari Sequar, laid out plans to build a six-story building on a triangular parcel adjacent to H Street’s starburst intersection. Sequar also developed the Boundary Heights condominium on the U Street Corridor.

The building would have ground-floor retail, seven residential units each on floors 2-5, and six units on the sixth floor. PGN Architects designed the project.

Reached by phone Tuesday, Sequar declined to comment on the proposal. Attorney Meridith Moldenhauer is representing the property owner in the zoning case.

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.
