Petworth Project Gets Nod

A Washington DC Council committee this week gave an approval to a project in the 4100 block of Georgia Avenue by allowing closure of the alley between Georgia Ave., Kansas Ave., and Taylor St. The local ANC has already given its approval for the Neighborhood Development Corp (NDC) to construct a mixed-use rental development just north of the Petworth Metro, expected to contain 72 affordable apartments, with construction to start this Fall (artist's rendering of building is pictured). Included will be 10,500 square feet of retail and 57 underground parking spaces. The Petworth construction boom comes as nearby condo projects Park Place (completion in 2008) prepares to start sales shortly, and as Georgia Avenue readies for a new rapid transit bus running from Silver Spring to the National Archives. The novel rapid transit will operate new 40- foot buses beginning the end of September, reducing the number of stops from 54 to 14, and will be equipped with an emitter that lengthens the timing of green lights to allow the bus to pass through.
