The conversion of a laundromat into a 5-unit condo building and recommendations on the DC Office of Planning’s Zoning Regulations Review will be discussed by Advisory Neighborhood Commission 6B on Tuesday, March 12, 7 pm at the Hill Center, 921 Pennsylvania Avenue SE.
Owner Gary Cohen of Willco Development is seeking the commission’s support for a two-year extension on his variance requests for his proposed condo building at 732 15th Street SE (currently a parking lot). ANC 6B originally supported the variance requests in 2011.
Also, ANC 6B will vote on proposed comments to the Office of Planning on proposed updates to the zoning code, including the elimination of parking minimums, the allowance of “corner stores’ by-right in residential zones and new building height measurement standards. You can read more about the laundromat case and the zoning regulations review in the March planning and zoning committee report (listed after the meeting agenda).
I also plan to ask the commission to ratify my testimony on the status of Reservation 13, which I delivered at the March 1 DC Council oversight hearing for the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development.
As always, I’ll post a meeting recap sometime in the next few days.
