Dear PoP – zoning variance on kenyon + park b/t 13th and 14th St, NW in Columbia Heights

Kenyon House 1349 Kenyon St, NW

“Dear PoP,

I got a notice yesterday in the mail about this hearing.  It’s regarding this propsal,  The building on Kenyon is currently occupied and the one on Park looks mostly vacant.  Since the hearing involves both these properties, which are adjacent, I wonder if the developer will try to connect the two?  I also don’t really know the significance of the zoning change or why they would pursue it.  Another question is what will happen with the current residents – during and after the construction?

As a resident on this block I’m quite curious about this proposal and what it might mean for the neighborhood.  Both properties are quite large so anything done on them would be a big deal for the neighborhood.”

Wow, it’ll be very interesting to track the developments here. More info as it becomes available.
