A 49-unit condo building planned for Capitol Hill received unanimous approval from ANC 6B’s planning and zoning committee on Monday night, according to developer Madison Investments. The full ANC will hear the proposal on July 8.

The developer has also come up with renderings for the proposed project. The condos are planned for 912 11th Street SE (map), the current site of the Washington Auto Club. Madison is planning to build larger condos on the site to address what it believes is a dearth in family housing in the District. The developer is working with PGN Architects on the building.

As we’ve previously reported, construction is scheduled to start up early next year. When the project was first announced, Madison Investments’ Barry Madani told UrbanTurf the condo was part of a minor rebellion against the trend toward smaller units. New units have in fact shrunk significantly, at least when it comes to apartments; real estate data firm Delta Associates reports that the average size of new class A apartments in DC’s high rises fell 14 percent between 2000 and 2013.

“We think Washingtonians are not ants,” Madani said. “They need space and they need to have families, and people want to stay in the city. So we’re trying to fill that void.”

    If they're so opposed to small units, why are they doing a micro unit building at 14th & Wallach?

    They don't have any micro units at 14th & Wallach. They are all larger units. I think you are mistaking their building with the Harper maybe?
