Raze Application Filed for 503 Park Road, NW

503 Park Rd NW(503 Park Rd. (center) may be razed in the near future.)

I was recent alerted that the neighborhood will likely lose one of Middaugh and Shannon’s original Park View houses, namely the duplex at 503 Park Road, NW. The single family house was constructed in 1907 and last sold on August 18, 2016, for $855,000 (see listing here).

Presuming that a raze permit is approved for the existing house, the following conditions would need to be met for a by-right project on the lot which is Zoned RF-1.

  • A new building, in the form of a single family rowhouse that is three stories and 35 feet high, may be constructed. There would be no side yard setback requirements and there would be a minimum 20 foot rear yard setback requirement.
  • A new apartment building would not be able to be constructed on the site as a matter of right. If this is proposed, a use variance would need to be approved by the Board of Zoning Adjustment.
  • The new building could be constructed as a flat — or two dwelling unit building — as a matter of right.
I’m not aware of any other permit applications for this property at this time, but will post a follow up when more is know about this potential project.

    What is that material? Almost looks like painted Formstone but it’s a texture I’ve not seen.

    A raze/new building application has also finally been applied for 3701 New Hampshire.

    Is there anyway to put pressure on developers to finish what they start in a somewhat timely manner? There ar3 3 properties on Warder Street alone, of which I’m aware, that were started a long time ago and now sit partially finished, at least one with a long-past-the-permit-date dumpster in front on the street. So here’s one more property going under and who knows if/when it will ever be completed. Prices keep going up while the look of the neighborhood goes to hell. Please excuse the rant but living so near ## of redeveloped properties has worn me out.
