ZP Georgia LLP’s Planned Unit Development (PUD) — designed to replace the buildings currently at 3212-3218 Georgia Avenue (south of the Heights and replacing Petworth Liquors) — will be up for consideration at tonight’s ANC 1A meeting. The meeting begins at 7 p.m. and is held in the gymnasium of the Harriet Tubman Elementary School (3101 13th Street, NW — entrance through parking lot on Kenyon).

As reported after the November ANC 1A meeting, where the project was initially presented to the community, the project is planned to include 105 residential units spread throughout seven floors, 3,816 square feet of retail on the ground floor, 34 underground parking spaces, a residential roof deck and green roof, and ground floor fitness and club room. There are three items that ANC 1A will be asked to consider related to this project. They are:

  1. Closing a dead end rear alley. When the alley was realigned during construction of The Heights, a section of the former alley remained that leads nowhere. It has been proposed that the section that is directly behind 3218 Georgia be incorporated into the overall footprint of the project. Doing so will not diminish access to any of the other abutting property owners;
  2. Disposition of a small, District owned,  alley lot behind the development and its incorporation into the PUD (see photo below). The property is currently unused, and incorporating it into the development would put it to its highest and best use; and,

    This small alley building and its lot are behind 3214-3218 Georgia. It is currently unused.

  3. Consideration of community amenities. As the development is a PUD and is seeking some flexibility from a few of the Zoning Requirements, the developer is required to provide some type of amenities that balance out the development incentives being requested by the developer.

Amenities that have been proposed include trash removal, graffiti and posted bill removal, weeding and mulching of public space tree boxes, and street cleaning and sweeping for the immediate area as well as the creation and installation of 8 African American Heritage Trail signs in the Georgia Avenue section of ANC 1A.

For those wanting to know more about the areas where zoning flexibility is being requested, or the Office of Plannings assessment of the development, you can read the 13 page Office of Planning memorandum on this development.

    All of the details sound great to me. I hope the ANC supports this project!

    Me too. And I hope they support it without delay. I’m anxious to say goodbye to Petworth Liquors.

    Great to see moving along. I would like to see the tree boxes spiffed up along Georgia Avenue and continued improved streetscape — lower GA Ave. “great streets” never happened as on middle GA Avenue.

  4. Alex Says:

    so do they have to pay for the land they are taking from the alleys, or is it just free because its not being used? I dont mind if its free, I just want to also get some free land, if the district is handing it out.

    • Chris in Eckington Says:

      It is my understanding that alleys were created on land “donated” by the landowners to the city, so the city generally doesn’t charge developers when they are closed and developed.


  5. […] sure many people are wondering how the Planned Unit Development project planned for 3212 Georgia Avenue fared at the November 8th ANC 1A meeting. The short answer is it fared well and received ANC […]


  6. […] The parcel in question (Square 2892, Lot 0105) is owned by the District of Columbia but has not been used for some time. It is also surrounded by the property owned by the developer planning to replace Petworth Liquor with a new mixed-use commercial/residential project (You can read more about that projected here).
