A project to turn what used to be a 40-bed halfway house in Shaw into a 9-unit luxury development can move forward after receiving approval from the Board of Zoning Adjustment (BZA) on Tuesday.
Developer Lock7 can move ahead with its project at 1514 8th Street NW (map), once owned by the Efforts for Convicts Foundation, which ran the halfway house for 35 years, closing in early 2014.
Lock7, which is working with Square 134 Architects, had requested variances related to lot area, lot occupancy, nonconforming courts and compact parking spots on the property. The BZA granted those variances in a short hearing.
The developer is planning to build studios, one-bedrooms, two-bedrooms and three-bedrooms in the building, ranging in size from range in size from 384 to 1,226 square feet. Lock7 hopes to deliver the units in 2015.
