NCPC’s Height Master Plan Draft Final Recommendations Released:

“The following recommendation is proposed onlyfor areas outside of the L’Enfant City. The purpose of this recommendation is to balance the long-term potential growth needs of the city with the importance of protecting the integrity of the form and character of the nation’s capital, including federal interests and local communities.

The limits currently established in the federal Height Act should remain in place unless and until the District completes an update to the District Elements of the Comprehensive Plan where targeted area(s) that meet specific planning goals and also do not impact federal interests that are identified. Under this recommendation, building heights in targeted areas may be proposed to exceed the maximums under the federal law; and these may be authorized through the existing Comprehensive Plan process, pending Congressional approval. Should such targeted exceptions be authorized through the Comprehensive Plan, the Height Act would remain in place for all other areas both inside and outside of the L’Enfant City.”
