A new item popped up on this coming Monday's (March 12) Zoning Commission agenda
, and apparently it is a request by the developers of Capper/Carrollsburg
to revise one of the conditions in the original PUD
to allow units in the new Capper Seniors #2
building to be made available as workforce housing
(30%-60% annual median income) in addition to the already approved low-income senior units. This will probably be something that the ZC will have to have hearings on, but we'll find out on Monday.
And, let's think for a moment.... Income-limited units, in a building that will be ready this spring, close to Barracks Row and the Navy Yard Metro and the stadium
.... Could this be the mysterious Ballpark Apartments
? It would explain why they're using a portion of one of the Capper drawings in their ads (with no apparent fear of being sued), and there are indeed water and monument views from various angles in that new building (at least for now). It's a cirumstantial case, but a pretty strong one, methinks. Let's see what shakes out.
