18th and California St, NW rendering by A.F.Clarens Architect
A reader reports:
“As a neighbor within 200 ft. neighbor, got a zoning notice for a huge restaurant (including underground parking and a roof deck) that wants to go in where the surface parking lot at 18th and California is. The architectural plans (attached) show it dwarfing Jack Rose. They’re seeking an exemption to the “rear yard” requirement.”
Washington Business Journal reported:
“The property, at 2009 18th St. NW, is owned by the same company that operates Mexican restaurants Lauriol Plaza nearby and Cactus Cantina in Cleveland Park. It’s currently used as an overflow parking lot for Lauriol Plaza, which is just two blocks down 18th Street.”
Updates as the zoning process/construction progresses.
