Variance requested for Q Street project (UPDATED)

11/13/2016 3:25 PM by

UPDATED NOV.13, 2016

Attached are elevation drawings and a rendering of proposed residence at 2620 Q Street [ABOVE]. A variance is required because ti would not meet the corner street side yard or front yard requirements that are currently required by zoning. As you may know, these are fairly common requests for these corner lots.

The plans for this house have been modified to take into account design changes requested by some of the neighbors who live within 150′– it was originally going to have a very different looking first floor– but it is still 3 stories.

We are being asked to write a letter of support, so if you have objections or want more information, please let me know by Monday, November 21. Mark Baker, the developer’s consultant, is willing to meet with us individually or as a group, so please feel free to let me know you feel a CHC meeting is needed. If you want to contact Mark directly, here is his contact information:

The property owner of 2620 Q Street is requesting a variance from the Board of Zoning Appeals in order to authorize the construction of a single-family dwelling. Because of the size of the lot and R-6 zoning requirements, a variance is required to build in the lot.

According to the letter from Mark Baker (PDF), of Baker Development Resources, LLC, the property was occupied by a 2-story building with a storefront on the bottom until 1990.

The request is set to go before the Board of Zoning Appeals on December 7.
