A planned conversion of Planned Parenthood’s downtown office into a residential project can move forward, the Board of Zoning Adjustment (BZA) decided on Tuesday.
Red Multifamily Development reduced the number of condominiums in the building from the original 20 down to just 15 units. They also squeezed in another parking space, bringing the total for the project up to the four required by the Zoning Commission.
Still, that meant the building’s commercial space had no parking. Because the property at 1108 16th Street NW (map) is surrounded by larger buildings with commercial parking, and the owners pledged to enforce measures designed to mitigate the lack of parking, the BZA agreed to let the project move ahead.
Four of the building’s eight floors will remain commercial space. Planned Parenthood will relocate its headquarters to a site near Union Market.
