Elevation for 1550 Pennsylvania Avenue SE
Earlier this week, plans for an 81-unit apartment building in Hill East received unanimous approval from ANC 6B, reported ANC Commissioner Brian Flahaven.
Since we initially reported on the sizable development, which will be located on an irregular plot of land at 1550 Pennsylvania Avenue SE (map), the developers have adjusted the orientation of the parking garage and reduced the number of units from 83 to 81. The developers NOVO, are seeking a variance from the BZA in order to provide 30 parking spaces, rather than the required 41.
The space is currently a used parking lot. The proposed building will be near-triangular and will surround a series of existing rowhouses. The northern portion, adjacent to the rowhouses, will be three-stories high, while the southern portion near Barney Circle will rise to five stories.
In return for the approval, the developer signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the neighbors and agreed to pursue car sharing options and urge DDOT to add on-street parking on the Pennsylvania Avenue SE side of the building, said Flahaven.
NOVO will be meeting with the BZA on April 30th. We’ll keep you updated as the project moves forward.
