Pierce Investments plans to build 52 units on Florida Avenue in Trinidad, according to a filing with the Board of Zoning Adjustment made Wednesday.
The building is proposed for what’s now an auto repair shop at 1124-1126 Florida Avenue NE (map). It’s designed by PGN Architects and sits about a block from Gallaudet University and a couple of blocks from the heart of the H Street Corridor.
The project would have eight surface parking spots and 19 spots in a parking garage under the building.
To become reality, the project will need variance relief from the BZA for (among other issues) its density, which is greater than what’s allowed, as well as its height, which at a proposed 53 feet high is three feet higher than the maximum allowed in C-2-A zoned areas. The proposed building is much higher than the neighboring rowhouses.
