Pending Application Before HPRB by Developer of N Street Properties Adjacent to Tabard Inn on Dupont Circle ANC Special Meeting Agenda – 6:30pm Oct. 23 at Dupont Rescource Center (9 Dupont Circle)

Tue., Oct. 23rd (6:30pm): Over the past several years of controversy swirling around various proposals, derisively referred to by neighborhood activists as the “N Street Follies,”    plans by the developer have encountered numerous setbacks. (See, “Tabard Inn Gets Reprieve; Preservation Board Wants Modifications, BZA Rules No,” InTowner, June 2010, issue PDF at page 1.)

The ANC commissioners will be considering their response to the developer’s substantially revised application to be heard by the Historic Preservation Review Board on October 25th in the Board’s hearing room (441 4th St., NW; room 220). Among the major changes are ones that had been vigorously fought for by community representatives, including that its use should be residential only.
