ANC Preview: Last Call Edition

The ANC will meet for its July session next Monday night via Zoom at 6:30 pm. This is the last meeting of the ANC until September due to the annual August break.

The agenda is, frankly, pretty dry. It’s mostly just small construction projects. However, one item might get a bit more spicy: the proposal to build a semi-permanent beer garden on the site of the former Latham Hotel. The proposal calls for a 300-seat outdoor dinning and drinking area located on the northern half of the 3000 M St. property. This property has been in a state of suspended construction for years as various plans fall through. At one point it was going to be a micro-unit apartment building. More recently it’s been pitched as a hotel once more. But in either event, nothing is moving forward on that front any time soon. That’s where the beer garden comes in, as a way to use the space while a final plan is generated.

A 300-seat beer garden seems genetically designed to bring out livid residents complaining about the angry neighbor trifecta of parking, noise, and trash. But GM thought similar concerns would derail the Sandlot proposal at the intersection of M and Pennsylvania, and that went through. So who knows, maybe this has a chance?

Although the complaints will likely revolve around ABC-related issues, the matter is only now being considered by the Old Georgetown Board for its architectural impact. But then again, that never prevented non-architectural concerns from derailing a project in this venue!

Here is the full agenda:
