Details, Renderings Revealed For 117-Unit Kalorama Road Apartments: Figure 1
Rendering of new Kalorama Road project.

Two weeks ago, we reported on a new 125-unit apartment building on the boards for Kalorama Road. On Thursday night, UrbanTurf and the public received further details about the development that will be constructed in the parking lot adjacent to the Dorchester House at 2480 16th Street NW (map).

First off, the project will house 117 units, not 125. It will rise four stories, and there will be two levels of underground parking for a total of 175 spaces, some of which will replace the 115 spaces that are being built over. The project is, in essence, a smaller version of an extension of the existing Dorchester House that was proposed several years ago.

At Thursday night’s meeting, a number of Dorchester House residents spoke up about losing their parking spaces as of October 1, and the protests will only get louder as construction starts on this development and work continues on others in the vicinity.

The project could get started by early November and, if all goes according to plan, be complete within 20 months.

    175 spaces sounds like way too much...

    If you think about it, 175 spaces is not excessive. 115 of those spaces will replace the current parking for Dorchester's 400 or so units. The remaining spots work out to 1 spot for every two units in the new building, approximately.

    I moved out of The Dorchester at just the right time--they gave residents approximately 3.5 weeks to find new parking in Adams Morgan (no easy task). Many residents in this rent-controlled building are elderly and relied on the proximity of those parking spots. *shakes fist at Borger Management* Any word on who gets first dibs on the parking spots--the new residents, or the existing Dorchester residents who lost their parking spots?
