The site at 1401 Pennsylvania Ave SE, where New York Pizza currently sits, is at the beginning stages of a development process being undertaken by CAS Riegler, a DC-based developer. The project will be a Planned Unit Development (PUD), and I will write more about the PUD process in an upcoming post. One important feature of a PUD is that the developer is required to provide benefits and amenities to the surrounding neighborhood, in exchange for flexibility under the city's zoning regulations.
Tonight at 7pm CAS Riegler is hosting a community engagement meeting at the Hill Center (921 Pennsylvania Ave SE) in room 111.
CAS Riegler reached out to ANC6B to setup a meeting at this early stage in their planning, and tonight is an opportunity to learn more about the project, provide feedback, and start a community conversation about potential benefits the project could provide.
UPDATE: Here's the CAS Riegler project page. On that page you can also contact the developer with questions or comments.
