ANC Preview: Not Actually a Tavern Subdivison

The ANC meets for its July session tonight via Zoom at 6:30.

One item of note is the application by the recent purchaser of the historic “tavern” building on 33rd St. (scare quote used because despite the plaque, the building was not likely ever used as a tavern). They would like to subdivide the property to allow the construction of two new houses on Volta.

This sounds like an odd request, since the home is on 33rd St., several houses away from Volta, but the lot is huge and wraps all the way around to Volta. The plan would be to replace a two car driveway with the new homes:

There’s a really housing shortage in DC, and any more building will help. You might think that homes like this, which will likely sell for 7 figures, won’t help housing affordability, but it does. One more seven figure home in Georgetown, means one sub-seven figure home in other parts of the city doesn’t get bid up, and so on.

GM understands that the design concept for the two new homes was initially rejected by the OGB, but primary on aesthetic grounds. Hopefully a better design will be approved and eventually there will be two more homes, and two new families, in the neighborhood.

Here is the rest of the agenda:
