20-Unit Building in Adams Morgan Seeks BZA Approval: Figure 1

Capital City Real Estate is hoping to build a 20-unit residential building in Adams Morgan, according to plans submitted to the Board of Zoning Adjustment.

The property at 2341 Ontario Road NW (map) is adjacent to the Mary’s Center for Maternal and Child Care. The land is currently used as a parking lot. The site is split-zoned, which is one of the reasons that Capital City is applying for three special exemptions to the zoning code. Capital City wants the height and bulk allowances on one zone to be extended to the part of the lot that’s in the other zone, as well as two other exemptions.

The residential building will rise five stories, with the fifth story set back from the street, according to documents. It will include eight parking spaces and seven bike spaces.

Plans show a unit mix of mostly one- and two-bedrooms, with two units on a lower level of the building. The firm is working with Norman Smith Architecture on the project and will go before the BZA in September.
