The Week Ahead….and New Multi Residential in 1300 Block of K Street, SE
by Larry Janezich
Last Thursday night, Gene Pecar of Pecar Properties LLC, told ANC6B’s Planning and Zoning Committee of his plans to raze three town houses and a church (1341, 1345, 1347, and 1349 K Street, SE) an build a 36 unit by-right residential project. Pecar told CHC that a decision on apartments vs. condos as well as the size of the units has not yet been determined. He hopes to finish construction in late 2017, barring unforeseen circumstances. By-right means he will not seek zoning changes. Since the property lies outside of the Historic Preservation District, it will not come before the ANC for review.
