A blog for the Bloomingdale neighborhood in Washington, DC.
The answer to this quiz question is C-2-A. 138 V Street NW is zoned C-2-A (although good luck trying to confirm that.)
Looked it up and this is what C-2-A meanshere is the website it came from http://dcoz.dc.gov/info/districts.shtm Permits matter-of-right low density development, including office employment centers, shopping centers, medium-bulk mixed use centers, and housing to a maximum lot occupancy of 60% for residential use and 100% for all other uses, a maximum FAR of 2.5 for residential use and 1.5 FAR for other permitted uses, and a maximum height of fifty (50) feet. Rear yard requirements are fifteen (15) feet; one family detached dwellings and one family semi-detached dwellings side yard requirements are eight (8) feet.
Thanks for your comment, Mona. I guess that my statement was not clear! My statement about "trying to confirm that" did not regard the definition of C-2-A; my statement regarded confirming that 138 V St NW was indeed zoned C-2-A and not R-4.
Oh that is easy enough to find out...looked it up on DC's PIVS systemLooks like it is R4 as far as the city is concerned. It is owned by a company called Best Home Builders LLC. At sometime in January of this year it may have been reported as vacant and the city went out to verified and declared it occupied.Address: 138 V ST NW Zip Code: Zip Lookup SSL: 3116 0043 Cluster: Cluster 21 Ward: Ward 5 ANC: ANC 5E SMD: SMD 5E08 Census Tract: 003301 Zone: R-4 *
So the property must have been downzoned from C-2-A to R-4.
