I've just about reached my recommended yearly allowance of writing about the various Capper zoning requests
that are pending right now, but there's a light at the end of the tunnel, since the hearing
is finally being held Thursday night at 6:30 pm. If you've grown tired (as I have) of my haphazard attempts to describe exactly what's being requested, you can now pour through the Office of Planning report
, which gives far more detail than I've ever attempted. Even if you don't want to know that much about it all, there's a pretty good map on page three of the report that details the plans for every block of Capper/Carrollsburg
(though without any timelines for the future projects). I have a similar map on my main Capper page
, but this one does add a lot of detail.
I've also managed to snag the first renderings of two of the planned Capper apartment buildings, which I've added to my project page
. One (seen at top left) shows the 171-unit building planned for L Street, next to Canal Park
and behind the proposed 250 M Street
office building. There's also now a first look at the 189-unit building planned for the 600 block of L Street (seen above), on the north side of the old Capper Seniors
lot and just south of the Marine Bachelor Enlisted Quarters
. In the original Capper plans, this site was going to be townhouses, but it was decided that an apartment building would fit in better with the larger surrounding structures.
