The following was written by PoPville contributor David McAuley, founder of Short Articles about Long Meetings.

“We have absolutely no interest in doing Airbnb,” one of the owners of 3629 Windom Place NW said.

Still, rather than take the owner’s word for it, Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC) 3F/Van Ness voted to stipulate in its endorsement of zoning relief that the owners of the home will not use their planned basement apartment as a short-term homeshare. The unanimous vote of the ANC took place at its regularly-scheduled November 21 meeting.

3629 Windom Place is a single-family home located on a triangular lot at the corner of Windom Place and Reno Road. The couple living there wishes to convert the basement into a separate apartment and rent it out. They might be able to do so as a “matter of right”, that is, without zoning relief or ANC approval, except that they wish to put the door to the proposed basement apartment in the front of the building, and not the side or the rear. A front-facing door requires zoning relief, according to DC regulations.

The owners told the ANC they chose a front entrance because the alternatives would require extra lighting. The extra lighting would shine into the windows of their only neighbor’s house, they explained, while front entrance lighting, if any, would not. (more…)

From ANC3C06 Commissioner Angela Bradbery:

“Roadside Development is presenting its latest plans for the Fannie Mae redevelopment next Thursday, Oct. 26, from 7-9 p.m. at the McLean Gardens community center ballroom at 3811 Porter St. NW.

Roadside will show its “conceptual design,” which includes building locations and heights. Roadside will seek approval in November for this conceptual design from the Historic Preservation Review Board.

Next Thursday’s community meeting is being organized by Advisory Neighborhood Commission 3C. We are seeking input from residents before we make a recommendation about the conceptual design to the Historic Preservation Review Board.

You can get a sneak peek at Roadside’s conceptual design here.”

UrbanTurf reported:

“A Large Tract Review application filed with the Office of Planning (OP) shows how the ten-acre project will deliver over 700 residential units; 140-150 hotel rooms; 68,000 square feet of office and cultural-use space, including a theater; and over 200,000 square feet of retail, restaurants and services, including the District’s first Wegman’s grocery.”

4304 Connecticut Ave NW via parklane dry cleaners

“Dear PoPville,

Parklane Dry Cleaners said they lost their lease and were completely closing by 7pm on Monday. The woman was very nice on the phone but explained that, if I wanted my items, I needed to pick up everything before 7pm on Monday. They are a great dry cleaners and the employees are so nice. It breaks my heart that they have to close. Even after I moved to Columbia Heights, and then U Street (and even after giving up my car), I would only go to Parklane for dry cleaning. I dropped off suits about a week ago. If anyone else is a customer, they also need to pick up their items by 7pm today!”

Ed. Note: I called to confirm, 7pm is last chance to pick up clothes. Also they are incredibly nice folks. Very sad indeed.
