A 56-unit apartment project planned for the northeast corner of 14th and Wallach Place NW received final approval from the Historic Preservation Review Board (HPRB) today, and will start construction early this summer, UrbanTurf has learned.

The nine-story development will have ground-floor retail, but no parking. Developer Madison Investments will restrict tenants from acquiring residential parking permits, so the new residents do not add to the street parking crush. They will also be providing tenants with credits towards car share, bike share and public transit.

The final HPRB approval came today after the Historic Preservation staff asked the development team back in October to change around some of the materials used on aspects of the building exterior, as well as further refine the infill portion between two historic buildings on Wallach Place, and the storefront of the ground-floor retail. The project, called Elysium Fourteen, was designed by PGN Architects.

The apartment development has already received Board of Zoning Adjustment Approval (BZA) regarding the variances related to parking.

    Good luck enforcing that "no street parking" provision. It will be nearly impossible to enforce or manage.

    We at TransitScreen support the development of these no parking developments to reduce single occupancy vehicle usage (SOVs). Residents will have to rely more on public transit, bikeshare, carshare, rideshare and other means of shared use mobility. This is a growing trend in most major cities.
