Below is the agenda for the December 14th community meeting on development plans for 3101 Albemarle and the developers’ application for zoning relief.
Soapstone Valley Ventures plans to build five townhomes and one single-family detached home on the portion of the property that is not landmarked. This is higher density than DC code allows, and requires approval by the Zoning Commission. The developers are applying for a Planned Unit Development, or PUD.
Although the neighbors within 200 feet of the property have had many opportunities to meet with the developers, this is the first in-depth meeting for the broader community. This is an opportunity for more people to weigh in on issues that may go beyond the concerns of immediate neighbors.
