On The Level

Our thanks to David Franco and Jon Kardon of Level 2 for reaching out to the Wallach Place and T Street families regarding their planned project at 1905-1919 14th Street, NW. 

They sent us this letter earlier in the week and are distributing to the neighbors.

They were gracious with their time last month and we welcome them back to hear their latest thoughts on the development. They also provided us with the calendar of upcoming neighborhood meetings that will look at and review their project.

We were thinking of having Yum’s cater the August 3 meeting, but that proposal never made it out of committee.  Matchbox?

Dear Neighbor: Level 2 Development is planning to develop a new mixed use apartment building with approximately 150 apartments and 6,000 square feet of ground floor retail at 1905 – 1919 14th Street, NW.

As the project is located within the Greater U Street Historic District, Level 2 Development is seeking community support for the project in advance of our next presentation to the Historic Preservation Review Board (HPRB), tentatively planned for September 22, 2011. We invite you to join for the following planned community presentations of the drawings:

Wednesday, August 3, 7 pm
Presentation to Neighbors of 1300 Block of Wallach Place
Wallach Place, NW (Residence of Craig Brownstein and Doug Johnson)

Thursday, August 11, 7 pm

Thursday, September 1, 7 pm

As the design continues to evolve, additional presentation dates may be added, and if so, advanced notice will be provided to all recipients of this letter. We hope that you can join us at these upcoming presentations.
