Doing a little catch-up here.
Looks like I did not post this revised 143 Rear W St NW BZA application from Miller Development here at the blog. So here it is now.
Note that on Monday, 06-16-2014, the Bloomingdale Civic Association voted not to support this BZA application. The following day, on Tuesday, 06-17-2014. ANC 5E likewise voted not to support this BZA application.
So does that mean that Miller Development won't receive the zoning variance that he is seeking?

Subject: Miller Development Update
Here's a quick update on the proposed Miller development in the lot behind 143 W Street.
1) Save the date for the Bloomingdale Civic Association meeting on Monday at 7. It sounds like Miller will actually be there on Monday, and will request a vote from the Civic Association on his proposed development. If you have an opinion on what ends up happening in that lot, this is a critical meeting to attend.
2) Revised Proposal: Miller is now requesting a variance to build 5 units rather than 8 units. The revised application is attached. As a result, Miller only needs one variance (rather than two) from the city. He still is requesting a variance because the alleys are not 30-feet wide. The alleys are only 10-15 feet. I understand that the only permissible use for the lot without the requested variance is garages and artist studios. I assume that Miller will provide an overview of his revised proposal at the BCA meeting on Monday.
