An alley development is in the works in Kingman Park, and it's more ambitious than the typical accessory dwelling.
Union Square Partners and District Real Estate have applied for a zoning variance to subdivide an alley lot between C and D Streets NE, from 15th to 16th Street (map), in order to deliver six two-story townhouses. The site is zoned RF-1, requiring access from an alley at least 24 feet wide; the existing alleys range from 16-20 feet wide.
The typical floor plan will include five bedroom suites and a den, and two of the upstairs bedrooms will have access to private balconies. Each house will have at least one interior parking space on the cellar level and a roof deck. R. Michael Cross Design Group is the architect.
The Board of Zoning Adjustment is scheduled to consider the case in May.
CORRECTION: The development team has been updated since publication.
