Another DC church is looking to redevelop some of its land.
New Macedonia Baptist Church has filed a map amendment application for its surface parking lot at 2026 Jackson Street NE (map). The church wants to rezone the lot from R-1B (detached houses) to MU-4 (moderate-density mixed-use) which could make way for a mixed-use project.
Per the application, a specific development project is not yet on the boards for the site, but the church hopes to attract one — particularly because the site is visible from the Rhode Island Avenue corridor.
"The expectation is that the underutilized lot would become more attractive for mixed-use development with retail uses on the ground floor and new residential multifamily use above. The Map Amendment allows the minimum amount of density necessary to attract such investment."
A zoning hearing has not yet been scheduled.
