ANC 2F Supports No Parking For Blagden Alley Micro-Units: Figure 1

ANC 2F’s Community Development Committee agreed last week to recommend the full ANC support of SB-Urban’s requested variance for no parking at its planned micro-unit project in Blagden Alley. In September, the ANC decided not to support the request for a complete parking variance.

From the CDC report:

“The CDC voted (5-2) to recommend that the full ANC support the BZA request for a 100% parking special exception at 90 Blagden Alley and a 100% parking variance for 91 Blagden Alley. The two buildings will be part of a fully furnished 123-unit residential project by SB Urban. The Applicant addressed Committee concerns brought up at the September CDC meeting, including: a promise to record a covenant preserving the side yard; a commitment to funding the installation and first year of operation of a Capital Bikeshare station; signage installation and a package delivery room to discourage delivery trucks in the alley; a rapid trash pick-up plan for M St; and assurances that residents move-in and move-outs will be minimal since units are fully furnished (including linens, utensils, plates, electronics, etc.).”

SB-Urban has seen similar success for two of its other planned DC projects. Last week it received a zoning variance for its Georgeotwn development, offered with some off-site parking. Its transportation management plan at its (parking-less) Dupont Circle development won praise from ANC 2B.

The Blagden Alley project is scheduled to go before the Board of Zoning Adjustment on Wednesday.
