The Zoning Commission took final action yesterday and approved Chapman Development LLC's plans to build a new apartment building at 2300 Pennsylvania Avenue, SE. The official plans call for a 118-unit building which will house 100% workforce housing for those earning 60% AMI. The 59-ft. building will wrap around a 6,000-s.f. courtyard bounded by Prout Street, Pennsylvania Ave and two public alleys, and residents will get the luxury of having 8,000 s.f. of retail on the ground floor. The approval clears the way for razing existing structures on the site.
