The DC Zoning Commission approved the plans for Parcel 11 of the Wharf development at their December 10 meeting. This parcel contains parks as well as the new building with St. Augustine Church and condominiums.
The committee also decided to delay its vote on the apartment building and retail development at the exit of the Navy Yard Metro station at 1111 New Jersey Ave. SE. This site contains the present St. Matthew’s Baptist church. The committee asked for more information on preservation of a large elm tree and details about the party room on the roof of the building. ANC 6D had voted 3 to 3 to not change their lack of endorsement of this building at their November meeting.
