I ST., 2001 -- The commission gave final approval to the request of the Arts Club of Washington, 2001 Associates, 2011 I Street Land Limited Partnership and the Electronic Industries Association to build an office building. The two westernmost buildings currently on the lot will be maintained and incorporated into the new construction, and the two on the east will be razed.
UPSHUR ST., 1300 block -- The commission gave final approval to the request of the National Council for Senior Citizens and the city's Department of Housing and Community Development to build a 55-unit apartment building for the elderly.
20TH ST., 1701 -- The commission deferred final approval of its decision to rezone the site of the Fourways Restaurant, pending further study of the National Capital Planning Commission's objection.
The owners of the property, Fourways of Washington Ltd., had sought rezoning to allow the construction of a seven-story condominium in the vacant lot behind the restaurant, which was built as a mansion in 1890. The planning commission, which serves as the land use agency of the federal government in the Washington area, voted to object to the rezoning because of historic preservation concerns. The mansion is a designated historic site.
The planning commission's opinion is not binding on the zoning commission. A final zoning commission decision is expected at its meeting March 14.
