Currently, the site at 2800 Sherman Avenue NW houses a public alley, one-story garage, and a plumbing company with less than stellar reviews on Yelp, but soon it could be Columbia Height's next bustling residential neighborhood. The owner of the property and developer recently filed an application with the D.C. Board of Zoning Adjustment for relief from the development's height limit, lot width, and parking lot location. The proposed development will include 11 two-family dwellings, or flats, without side yards. Each of the structures will be three stories high with accessible rooftop decks and rear yards. 15 off-street parking spaces are planned. The developer will need a special exception relief to build the flats 36-feet-high when they are limited to 35-feet-high in R-4 zones.
Below, you can see a photograph of what the site currently looks like. The photo was taken from the documents filed with the Board of Zoning Adjustment.
