225-Unit Project Planned For Linens Building Gets Green Light: Figure 1

The Holladay Corporation can get to work transforming the Linens of the Week/Alsco property on Lamont Street into a 225-unit multifamily development, the Board of Zoning Adjustment (BZA) decided this week.

There are currently two buildings on the site at 713 Lamont Street NW (map): one four-story commercial and industrial building and one-story industrial building, according to zoning documents. The project, which will stretch down 450 feet of Lamont Street, consists of three buildings: A three-story, eight-unit building on what’s currently a parking lot; a 77-unit build-out in the existing four-story building; and a mostly new, 139-unit building on the remainder of the property, which will keep the one-story building’s facade but otherwise be brand new.

Eric Colbert is the architect on the project. Holladay had requested zoning variances and relief for its loading, rear yard and penthouses on one of the structures. It also required approval to expand the one-story industrial building into a new 139-unit building. The Office of Planning supported the project and it was approved by the BZA without discussion.
