Vacant Lot at Sherman and Irving to be Developed
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.
