A Clearer Look at 50 Units Proposed in Lamond Riggs
Two months ago, UrbanTurf reported on plans to complete The Hampshires development in Lamond Riggs. Now, a zoning application offers more details — and a more detailed look at the design for the project.
The original plan was to adaptively reuse the long-vacant former school building at 6101 Sligo Mill Road NE (map) to create 46 condos, however the Baltimore/Washington Economic & Development Fund (BWEDF) is now proposing to raze and replace the property with a 3.5-story, 50-unit apartment building.

The new zoning application offers more of an explanation as to why a conversion is no longer being pursued:
"Through consultation with its contractor, Eichberg Construction, and in reviewing the previous design iterations, the Applicant determined that the Existing Building, which was constructed in different phases in the early 20th century, had too many embedded design deficiencies to be successfully rehabilitated. Living standards have evolved dramatically since the Existing Building was first constructed. For example, if the Existing Building were retained, items such as room sizes, corridor widths, stair sizes and configurations, ceiling heights, paths of egress and elevator sizes would need to be reconfigured to provide modern housing to meet the market demand and keep pace with more upscale, newer housing in the area and to adhere to required ADA requirements."
The plan is for the unit mix to be studios through two-bedrooms (although predominately one-bedrooms), and there would also be 50 surface parking spaces on multiple lots. As originally approved, 11 of the new units would be affordable, but per the current Inclusionary Zoning guidelines, the units would be for households earning up to 60% instead of 80% of median family income. Nelson Architects is the designer.
A zoning hearing has not yet been scheduled.
