From the October 2015 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:

The new apartment building behind Washington Sports Club (2251 Wisconsin Ave.) is nearly ready for occupancy. At press time, 2255 Wisconsin was offering new tenants a 1.5-month break on rent if they moved in by November 1. The building of one- and two-bedroom apartments—which rent for $2,000 to $3,300—features an interior courtyard and rooftop deck. The development is pet-friendly, though it has some breed restrictions. For more information, visit 2255wisconsinave.com or call 844-209-4518.

From the February 2015 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:

The six new luxury condominiums at 2140 Wisconsin Ave. went on the market over the holidays, and one was under contract by mid-January, according to Nate Ward of Capital Park Realty. Ranging in price from $425,000 to $1.2 million, the one- and two-bedroom units feature open layouts, huge plate-glass windows, and Thermador ranges. There’s parking at the building’s rear for the two penthouse units—each of which comes with a rooftop deck. For information, visit cparkre.com.

Earlier this month, the Board of Zoning Adjustment approved a variance that would allow a new apartment building to be constructed on Wisconsin Ave. with no dedicated parking spaces for tenants. While the plan does call for the construction of two parking spaces directly behind the building, the owners were still working on securing a legal right to access the spaces via an adjacent office parking lot.

The building, to be built on the long-vacant lot at 2140 Wisconsin Ave.—just south of W Pl.—would contain eight dwelling units. Advisory Neighborhood Commission 3B supported the developer’s application, and no one appeared at a July 9 BZA hearing to oppose it.

Though parking is painfully scarce in the area, lot owners AE Tower LLC and RE Opal LLC made a compelling case for the variance in a written statement to the board. The narrowness and location of the lot do not allow for underground parking, the statement notes, and a front curb cut would create only one or two spaces—plus potential traffic hassles as parkers backed onto busy Wisconsin Ave. The large parking lot at the rear of the building is reserved for the office complex from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays, though apartment dwellers would be able to park there after hours. The property is adjacent to several bus lines and is a few blocks from a Capital Bikeshare station.

Adding apartments, even without parking, would be preferable to leaving the lot vacant, the statement argues: “The proposed project would convert a long-vacant ‘eyesore’ property to a vibrant residential use. The design will greatly improve the appearance and character of this block.”

A building permit application is under consideration by the Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs.
