Since August 1981, the non-profit, known as Mary’s House (unrelated to Mary’s House for Older Adults), has served immigrant and refugee parents and children, growing to 13 sites across the Northeast quadrant of Washington, D.C., and now there are plans to grow even further.
At 1005 Bunker Hill Road NE, there are designs for a three-story addition connected to an existing two-story building by a one-story pedestrian walkway and entry. The new building will add 12 residential units to the six existing units in the current building. There are also plans for a bicycle storage room, three new parking spaces, and a new rear patio.
In the Board of Zoning Adjustment (BZA) application, the developer asks for special exception approval in order to allow surface parking spaces in the front yard of the building.
The location is only a couple blocks from the Brookland Metro station.
