A previous rendering of Meridian Hill Baptist Church
Keeping up with the trend of parking-free developments, the new owners of Meridian Hill Baptist Church hope to turn the site into a 70-unit condo building with no parking.
However, the plans have now changed. Meridian Hill Baptist Church will retain ownership of the property, and have entered into a joint venture with Valor Development to develop the site, ANC 1D Commissioner China Terrell tells UrbanTurf. Valor plans to create 70-75 one-bedroom units on the site, and to forego on-site parking.
For residents with cars, Valor is hoping to enter into an agreement with DC USA to lease or buy spaces at its enormous parking lot, which is about two blocks away from the church.
The developers stopped by the ANC 1D meeting on Tuesday night to brief the community on the project, and the response from the commission was generally positive. A community meeting on the project will be held next week.
