ANC Preview: Starr Back on Track?

The ANC will meet tonight for its May session. It will be a 6:30 and via zoom.

There are a couple of items on the agenda that may be of interest.

The first that caught GM’s eye is a liquor license application for Georgetown Restaurant Group at 3270 M St. This is the address of the historic Georgetown Market, in which Stephen Starr in planning to open an Italian restaurant/market. The plans appeared to have been held up by various layers of approval. But the fact they are lining up the liquor license should give some hope that the project is finally moving forward.

The application itself gives a little more information about the project, but it’s not really info that wasn’t already public:

New Retailer’s Class “C” Restaurant with a seating capacity of 225 and Total Occupancy Load of 375. Summer Garden with 100 seats. Entertainment Endorsement to provide live entertainment indoors only. Licensee is requesting an Alcohol Carry-out and Delivery Endorsement

Another interesting item on the agenda is actually one that the ANC put on the consent calendar (meaning they aren’t actually going to discuss it.) It’s two items actually: the razing of the West Heating Plant and the construction of the new apartment building in its place. This project has been even longer in the planning and approval process. Richard Levy’s group won the property at auction way back in 2013. He’s been pushing for the completion of the project ever since.

The fact that the ANC isn’t even going to discuss it reflects the fact that most of the issues have been largely hammered out and there’s relatively broad support for the project to finally move forward.

Finally one more item caught GM’s eye. A store called UpWest is coming to 3110 M St. It appears to be yet another women’s clothing store.

Here’s the full agenda:
