ANC6B Approves New Expanded Concept for La Lomita Development
by Larry Janezich
Last Tuesday night, ANC6B approved an expanded concept for the redevelopment of La Lomita restaurant at 1330-1336 Pennsylvania Avenue, SE. What was formerly 10 condos and 1,000 square feet of restaurant retail space is now 12 condos and 3000 square feet of retail. There will be 1 three bedroom, 5 two bedroom, and four one bedroom units. Some units will have private roof decks, but there will be no common roof deck. The expansion was made possible after the owner, Samuel Fuentes, acquired a townhouse adjacent to the property.
Developers have agreed that none of the residents of the project would be eligible to participate in the Residential Parking Permit program.
La Lomita will still occupy much of the first floor, though developers say there is “some flexibility” regarding the first floor retail space.
PGN Architect partner Jeff Goins – who is also the architect for the 49 unit residential project at 11th and I Streets, SE, planned by Madison Investments – is the architect for the project.
The ANC had approved the earlier smaller concept in January of 2015. For CHC’s post on that, go here: http://bit.ly/2iztxO9
