The D.C. Court of Appeals has issued a potentially precedent-setting opinion that not only tosses the Zoning Commission’s approval of a controversial Brookland development, but also may force the commission to change the way it reviews and OKs projects.
The court on Thursday vacated, for the second time, the commission’s June 2012 approval of a planned-unit development slated for 901 Monroe St. NE in Brookland, on a 60,000-square-foot parcel two blocks from the Brookland-CUA Metro station. The project — from the Menkiti Group, Esocoff & Associates, Horning Brothers and Jim Stiegman — was approved for more than 200 apartments and 13,000 square feet of retail. The site includes the Colonel Brooks Tavern, which closed in 2012.
