A developer’s plans to build a new residential project near the Wharf development at 6th and M Streets SW (map) received support from ANC 6D on Monday night.
The neighborhood ANC has been overwhelmed with coming development, much of it in large-scale mixed-use buildings, led by the billion-dollar Wharf redevelopment. The constant construction and road closures have made some residents hostile toward new projects. But Mill Creek Residential actually sought to reduce the scale of the original plans for the property, approved by the Zoning Commission years ago. That won them the unaninmous support of the ANC on Tuesday.
The new plan will have 290 parking spaces, down from 569 — a nod to the area’s other transit options — and will include a building with 260 units, down from 324. There will be 5,200 square feet of retail on site, down from 8,900.
The change to the planned unit development still requires the approval of the Zoning Commission.
