Under the proposed zoning regulations review being coordinated by the DC Office of Planning -- if Florida Avenue NW were to be categorized as a "transit zone area," since it is serviced by a major bus line and is within walking distance to the NoMa-Gaulledet Red Line Metrorail station, then the minimum parking requirements would be removed.
So what would that really impact in Bloomingdale?
There are two empty lots along Florida Avenue NW.
Here is the smallish empty lot on the southside of the unit block of Florida Avenue NW -- next to Revive, etc. This lot used to house tires.
And here is Joe Mamo's empty lot at North Capitol Street NW and Florida Avenue NW. This is next to the former Soul Day Spa and Salon, now Fiddleheads Salon. The third image below is rendering from 2011 of what Joe Mamo proposed back then; what ultimately gets developed would likely have the building height, in any event.
How would you feel about mixed-use development projects on these two sites that could possibly have NO offstreet parking, under the proposed zoning regulations review?
No big deal?
