On Wednesday night, Community Three Development plans to appear before the ANC 6C Planning, Zoning and Economic Development Committee to present the updated plans for their new Capitol Hill condominium development.

While the bare bones of the plan have not changed much, the developer has tweaked some elements of the design in response to concerns from neighbors and the ANC committee members.
The new design is much less industrial, with a single building that will transition from a residential apartment-style along 8th Street to a more manor house-like appearance as it turns the corner at C Street. The height of the building and the style and depth of the bay windows on this side of the building have also been altered to more closely approximate the existing homes on C Street.

There will be far fewer balconies than in the original proposal, and four or five of the units will be set aside for inclusionary zoning. The number of below-grade parking spaces has dropped to 18, and there will be at least one bicycle space for every three condo units. One-third of the units will be one-bedrooms, while the remainder will be two-bedrooms of varying sizes. Sale prices for some of the larger two-bedroom units are expected to be north of $1 million.
Although the main entrance will be on 8th Street, some of the street-level units will have private entrances. The sidewalk along 8th Street will be improved with tree pits, and a curb cut on C Street will be removed to add parking to the neighborhood.
The development team will file their plans with the Historic Preservation Review Board in order to get the application reviewed late this month. Depending on when the development is approved, the dialysis business currently on-site will relocate in either the spring or summer of 2017; construction should take 14 months.
