Controversial Florida Ave Development Project before BZA Tomorrow!

Pierce Investments, LLC (1124 Florida Ave NE) to Appear Before the Board of Zoning Adjustment on Tuesday, June 9th

Pierce Investments, LLC (1124 Florida Ave NE) to Appear Before the Board of Zoning Adjustment on Tuesday, June 9th at 9:30 am in Suite 220 South of 441 4th Street NW. There have been at least two ANC Single Member District Meetings regarding this development. Those have been contentious and not addressed all issues/questions raised by community members. Pierce Investments, LLC is scheduled to appear before the full ANC on June 9th at 7:00 pm, after their BZA hearing.

The BZA Calendar lists the hearing as one of nine scheduled. Hearing notes on the calendar are:

Case Number : 18987
Case Name : Application of Pierce Investments, LLC
Case Summary : (Area Variance) Request pursuant to 11 DCMR § 3103.2, for variances from the height requirements under § 770, the floor area ratio requirements under § 771, the rear yard requirements under § 774, and the residential loading requirements under § 2201, to allow the construction of a five-story multi-family building containing 52 units in the C-2-A District at premises 1124 Florida Avenue N.E. (Square 4070, Lot 808).
ANC : 5D
Result :

Pierce Investments has submitted a Pre-hearing letter with additional information and design changes. While they have reduced the number of dwelling units from 52 to 44, they maintain need for a variance in height requirements and rear yard set back. Please refer to the attached Prehearing Statement.

To date, only one letter of opposition has been submitted and the BZA hearing is being held prior to the ANC vote. Anyone that wants to weigh in on the decision should attend the hearing tomorrow or submit a letter to the BZA. Detailed instructions for submission of testimony can be located at:
