Meeting Tonight re: 1264 Holbrook Terrace NE

Tonight at Trinidad Recreation Center there is a meeting about the development at 1264 Holbrook Terrace NE. Please see information below from Commissioner Shropshire.

_______________________________________________________________

Sending a friendly reminder about the meeting this evening with the BZA Applicant 19173 (1264 Holbrook Terrace NE) at Trinidad Rec Center at 7 pm. We are meeting with them so that they can share their proposed changes based on community feedback.

BZA Applicant 19168 will not meet with us this evening. This applicant indicated that they have interest in withdrawing their BZA application which requested special exemption for additional 4.2 feet, and they plan to renovate by right within the permissable 35 feet based on community feedback. If you have any questions, please let me know.
Thanks,
Keisha

75 Affordable Housing Units Proposed at 1164 Bladensburg Road NE

Bladensburg Road NE is ripe for development as property values in neighboring areas rise and developers/businesses seek new locations. In May TNA held a meeting to discuss some of the plans along the Bladensburg Road corridor with H Street Main Street and consultant Derrick Woody (see link above for access to the presentation). There is also a significant amount of vacant property that the city has been working to address by fining owners and/or placing blighted property in higher tax brackets to spur putting land and buildings back into productive use. As well there is a lack of affordable housing as prices and rents rise across the city.

The property at 1164 Bladensburg Road NE was formerly a Southern Fried Chicken and Pizza and then Nationals Pizza and retail grocery/car sales before being abandoned. In January 2015 the owners of the lot were cited for issues related to compliance/housing/vacant property.

ANC 5D02 Commissioner Keisha Shropshire posted the following notice about a meeting to be held on October 7th from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm at W.S. Jenks Hardware (910 Bladensburg Road NE). Hopefully you can attend and provide community input on the future of this long-vacant site.

“We need your input regarding a future development project! Neighborhood Development Company and its affiliates are planning to develop approximately 75 affordable housing units at 1164 Bladensburg Road, NE on the corner of Meigs Place and Bladensburg Road NE. The building is currently boarded up and serves little purpose to the surrounding community. This newly proposed development will help spur further development along Bladensburg Road NE which will help bring more retail and more general business to this part of Trinidad DC.

Please join us for a community discussion on October 7, 2015 at W.S. Jenks, 910 Bladensburg Road NE from 7-8 pm.

Please RSVP to:
5D02 ANC Commissioner Keisha Shropshire at (404) 245-6772 or 5D02@anc.dc.gov.

5D07 ANC Commissioner Clarence Lee at (202) 550-2066 or 5D07@anc.dc.gov.”
