A developer has proposed building an eight-unit condo project in southeast Capitol Hill, according to plans filed with the Board of Zoning Adjustment (BZA).
The land at at 1220 Potomac Avenue SE (map) is currently occupied by a three-bedroom single-family house that the developer, Todd Ragimov, would raze.
The back of the house isn’t accessible by an alley, so Ragimov says he’s unable to provide any parking to the otherwise by-right development. The home currently has a curb cut out front that must be removed.

Ragimov says that as a result of the building’s lack of parking, he’s decided to build small units instead of the “originally proposed 5 dwelling units,” which he said “were large two-bedroom units attractive to young families looking for an urban living experience and in all likelihood, automobile owners needing access to some parking opportunities.”
Now, though, “the dwelling units have been redesigned into smaller units to attract potential home buyers seeking an urban living experience because of the proximity of the subject property to a major transportation artery on Pennsylvania Avenue, including the Potomac Avenue Metro Station, which is located less than two blocks away,” the filing for the project states.
Ram Design is the architect on the project. Because it is in the Capitol Hill Historic District, the building will require approval from the Historic Preservation Review Board.
