Donohoe's planned 146,000-sq-ft office building at 1111 New Jersey Ave.
(on the west side of New Jersey between L and M) takes a step forward tomorrow with a hearing
in front of the Board of Zoning Adjustment
--they're looking for a special exception for a waver of the rear yard requirement, which apparently would allow them to put up an 11-story building with higher ceilings as opposed to a 12-story building with lower ceilings if they have to keep the rear yard. ANC 6D voted in April
to oppose this application, but more because the developers are not providing a community benefits package than any issues with the application itself. The hearing should be webcast
, and I'd tell you what time it's scheduled for, but the Zoning Schedules and Agendas site
has been down for three days now, so I can't look it up to confirm.
The BZA site is back, so I can tell you that the hearing
is the third item on the agenda for the session that begins at 9:30 am.
