It's nowhere near as exciting as zoning hearings (then again, what is?), but I see that the City Council hearing on the bill to close a 2,400-sq-ft alley on Square 700 is happening tomorrow (May 29)
, after having been canceled back in February
. The alley is just north of what used to be the BP Amoco station on South Capitol Street at N
(which is now Nats Parking Lot N). Monument Realty is requesting this closure to allow for the combining of both the Amoco site and the parking lot to its north, with plans to build what was described in January as a residential building with 150-200 units and 14,000 sq ft of ground-floor retail space, as part of Monument's Half Street projects
. Additional details are in my January report
on Monument's request for ANC 6D's support (which they didn't get, thanks to a 2-2-1 vote). The bill is B017-0552
, if you'd like some light afternoon reading. The hearing is scheduled be televised
on DC Cable 13, starting at 10 am.
