I just received notice of this meeting regarding the big government building on the south side of the 600 block of H Street (the one housing the Dept. of Employment Services):
When: 6-8pm Wednesday, Aug. 30, 2006
Where: Calvary Episcopal Church, 820 6th St NE, Parrish Hall Meeting Room
“You are invited to a community meeting sponsored by Commissioner Anthony Rivera of ANC6C to receive information and discuss Board of Zoning Adjustment Case 17521, an application filed by 601-645 H Street Ventures LLC for variance and special exception to allow construction of a new mixed-use (residential and commercial) building at 601-645 H Street NE.”
“Representatives of the applicant will be present at Wednesday’s meeting to provide information and answer questions about the proposed development.”
“The property that is the subject of this application consists of Lot 177 in Square 859 and is currently occupied by D.C. government offices.”
The applicant proposes to construct a mixed-use residential and commercial development on the property. The project is designed as a nine-story mixed-use section of the building fronting H Street in the C-2-C zone and steps down to a five-story residential section at the south side of the property in the C-2-A zoned portion of the site.
“The residential condominium will include over 312,000 square feet of gross area and 234 residential units. Three levels of parking below grade will provide approximately 500 parking spaces for office, retail and condominium units. Nearly 8,700 square feet of first floor retail space provides opportunities for retail businesses to have direct access to the pedestrian activity on H Street.”
