New Housing Headed for Newton Place (Again)

Rendering of Newton Place infill development from BZA Case #18519.

After four years, it appears that the development proposed for the vacant lot on the north side of the 400 block of Newton Place will be moving forward. This is due to the property changing hands with the new owner wanting to move forward with the plans that were approved in March 2013.

I first posted about this project back in January 2013, at which time I outlined how the plans were for three 2-unit buildings that each would have one off-street parking space behind them. The development was by-right with the exception of one zoning variance. That variance that was request was to subdivide the lot for three buildings that were approximately 16.66 feet in with. The minimum width proscribed by zoning was 18 feet, or about 1.33 feet greater than what was being requested.

ANC 1A voted to support the project followed by approval by the Board of Zoning Adjustment (which met on March 26, 2013). According to the the plans, each living unit is configured to consist of two floors and contain three bedrooms and three bathrooms.
