Well, we saved the, err, best for last. Please take a deep breath before proceeding.
Summary of development: All office, limited parking (about 38 spaces), no retail, no residential. One thing we noticed is that throughout the site plan, the address of the development has a typo: 703 3rd St.
The coolest thing about this development is that it has one of those automated parking garage systems. There are only two other systems that we know of in DC. One is a new development in Georgetown (can’t recall the location) and the other is in the Grand Parc apartment building at 910 15th St NW.
In my discussions with the Historic Preservation Office, this development is able to be exclusively offices because the zoning allows it. It was suggested that if residential or retail is desired in this area that we take the issue up with the Zoning Office.
