Vacant Lot at Sherman and Irving to be Developed

1000 Lamont elevations(Elevations for building proposed for 1000 Lamont Street, NW)

Three Board of Zoning Adjustment (BZA) cases will be considered at tonight’s ANC 1A meeting. The one that is located closest to Park View is for a freestanding, 3 story + mezzanine, two unit flat building that is designed with 60% lot coverage. The site is located on the southwest corner of Lamont Street and Sherman Avenue (1000 Lamont Street).

According to the BZA  application, the building is not designed to extend beyond the maximum height allowed. “The flat is to be constructed, like many of the houses in the neighborhood, of modest forms and modest materials (wood or metal frame construction with painted overlap fiber cement lap siding) with a low slope roof. It is to be built along the property lines at the west and east. A 20’-0” rear yard is proposed – most of which will be a garden for the Lower unit.”

Zoning currently requires that the building provide space for one off street parking space. The variance being requested is for relief from that parking requirement as the property does not abut an alley and is small.

Below is a photo showing the lot, and the plans can be reviewed here.

    wonderful; I love all the development coming to Sherman. Onward and upward Park View (or is this CoHi?).

    At Irving?

  3. K Says:

    Always wondered about that empty lot at Sherman and Lamont (thought one of the adjoining properties or city owned it). Now I know!

  4. Gentrify-u Says:

    Ridiculous! Where will people park?!

  5. joemoccia Says:

    yeah.. parking is turning into a pretty huge issue here. The Alsco building will soon be 250 condo units with only about 130 parking spots.
