Townhomes, Retail Planned For H Street Corridor Alley Get Approval
A new project that would bring four townhomes and neighborhood-serving commercial space to an alley off H Street Corridor got the green light just before the end of the year.
The development planned for 1313-1323 Linden Court NE (map) from Monarch Homes affiliate Linden Court Partners received unanimous approval from the Board of Zoning Adjustment in late December.

Built on the site of an auto body shop, the four townhomes will rise three floors with an additional mezzanine level and will feature period style carriage doors, recessed entryways and gas lanterns, as well as garages, rear patios and roofdecks. The new development will preserve and incorporate design elements from the existing property.
Developer Jim Kennerknecht tells UrbanTurf that the plan is for the first phase of the homes to deliver before the end of the year. The new development was designed by Square 134 Architects, and will be marketed and listed by TTR Sotheby’s.
One of the main variances that the developers received approval for related to the height of the development. Under zoning regulations, the maximum allowable height is 30 feet, but the approved variance allows for the developers to build up to 39 feet.
This will be one of the first DC projects for Monarch Homes, a Virginia in-fill builder of custom single family homes and townhouses.
