Okay, the title to this article is not a direct quote, but it might as well be. This H Street Corridor project is planned to have 28 residential units and no parking spaces. While the project automatically requires 21 parking spaces, the developers are asking for approval from the Board of Zoning Adjustment (BZA) to just not. The developer argues that residents of the project would be just fine with public transportation like the H Street streetcar. While the BZA isn't completely sold on the idea, there are other issues that the developer will need to convince the Board on. One issue is that the developer wants to build to 99 percent of the lot occupancy even thought the maximum permitted is 80 percent, as reported by UrbanTurf. For now, the developers for this project on 1401 Florida Avenue NE will have to provide more proof to the BZA that the development won't be more trouble than it's worth.
