Elevation for 1550 Pennsylvania Avenue SE.
An 83-unit residential project is planned for 1550 Pennsylvania Avenue SE (map) in Hill East. ANC 6B Commissioner Brian Flahaven got a hold of initial plans for the project, designed by architect Eric Colbert.
The development is located on an irregular plot of land near Barney Circle, currently occupied by a used car 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.
The developers, Penn Avenue Partnership, LLC, are currently planning on creating 31 parking spaces, less than the 42 required by the current zoning code. No word on whether the project will be rentals or condos.
The developer will be meeting with the community next Wednesday evening at New York Pizza, and will have to go before ANC 6B to seek approval for several zoning variances.
The plans seem preliminary at this point. We’ll keep you update as they become more specific.
