On Monday night, the Zoning Commission
briefly took up a group of items having to do with the Planned Unit Development
(PUD) approved for Capper/Carrollsburg
back in 2004. The first was the request that I've written about in the past
to expand the allowed number of residential units in apartment buildings planned for two spots along L Street (between Second and Third behind the proposed 250 M Street
office building and on the north side of the Old Capper Seniors
site). See my previous entry for specifics
There were also requests for three time extensions: to extend the first-stage PUD for an additional five years, to extend the deadline for filing second-stage approvals for the apartment building sites along Canal Park (including the trash-transfer station site) to 2013, and to extend the deadline for filing a building permit application for the planned community center
at Fifth and K to January 2011, with an included extension of the start of construction to January 2012.
The commission voted 4-0-1 to have all of these items come up together on a future date to be determined (as one public hearing and one special public meeting for those of you well-versed in ZC phraseology).
