Rumors are abuzz about the 10th & G St NW Soup Kitchen/Church/Luxury Condo development headed by PN Hoffman. Word is that the developer has decided that office space would be more suitable for the site than condominiums.
We dug some more on the zoning of 945 G St, NW (Square 375, Lot 823) and found that DC’s Zoning Regulations require that there be some amount of retail space on the ground floor – something that is missing from the current plans. If PN Hoffman had proceeded with a residential structure, they would have been exempt from the requirement. Zoning Regulations, Chapter 17, Section 1703.3(c) states: “(c) This ground floor use requirement shall not apply to a building that is devoted entirely to hotel or apartment house use or to a church or other place of worship.”
Will the developer apply for a zoning change or will DC’s Zoning Commission let another one slip through the cracks?
