There will be meeting regarding the proposed development at 2411 M Street on Tuesday, August 2, at 6:00 PM at the Tricycle Garden’s building at 2314 Jefferson Avenue:

Dear Union Hill and Church Hill Neighbors,

As you know, there is a tremendous amount of investment occurring in our community. From Venable Street to Jefferson Avenue, from Mosby to 25th Streets, our Union Hill neighborhood is transforming.

One of our most prominent vacant parcels is the triangular lot at the intersection of Jefferson Avenue, 25th & M Streets.

A plan for development is nearing final review by the Commission of Architectural Review and your input can influence the character of what will be the most dominant structure on Jefferson Avenue and significantly impact the busy round-a-bout intersection at 25th Street.

Please attend an input session with the developers on Tuesday Aug 2 at 6pm, at Tricycle Garden’s Hqtrs, 2314 Jefferson Avenue.

Some of the concerns people have about the proposed building are:

  1. Building mass, scale and design in relationship to the neighborhood,
  2. Green space and vegetation,
  3. Storm water impact,
  4. Demolition of a historic structure (the law office),
  5. Density and vehicular circulation.
  6. Commercial uses on 1st and 4th floors.

And you may have other concerns after you review the plans. Or, you may find that you like the building as currently drawn. Either way, please come to this discussion.

This may very well be our last chance to collaborate with the builders, as the plan has been in the works for several months and the developers are anxious to keep moving forward through city approvals.

Officially, the large parcel is known as 2411 M Street, as it was a former single family home with that address.

If you have any questions, or can’t make the meeting and want your concerns to be heard, please contact either Elaine Odell at or Mary Field at

See you on Tuesday!

Elaine Odell
