Even With One Space Per Unit, A DC Development Draws Concerns About Parking
This alley is part of a larger battle to protect parking in Eckington. Google Maps.
A proposal to build a 25-unit residential development in Eckington was met with criticism on Monday night. As usual, the issue was parking.
Brian Brown of NextGen Development and Meredith Moldenhauer of Griffin, Murphy, Moldenhauer and Wiggins, LLP presented at the monthly Eckington Civic Association meeting on Monday to get community feedback before filing a planned unit development for a building with 25 units that will be located between R Street NE and the Emery School (map).

The building is designed to look like multiple towhouses and the average unit size will be 900 square feet. The new development will also feature a roof deck and many of the units will have balconies, which some area residents worried could intrude on their privacy.
However, residents expressed the most concern about the parking plan for the project, even though the developer will provide one parking space for every residential unit.
Currently, an underground lot with 25 spaces is proposed for the building. However, some residents said that this may not be enough to keep newcomers from parking on the street. Another concern was that the building’s residents may have visitors or social events that could strain the parking in the community.
“I know parking is a serious issue and that’s our main focus right now,” Brian Brown, a LeDroit Park resident, said during the meeting.
