52 condos proposed for 1124-1126 Florida Ave NE in Trinidad

The condoification of Trinidad continues. Developer Pierce Investments is planning 52 condos at 1124-1126 Florida Ave NE, where currently an auto repair shop sits.
The lot is large but irregularly shaped, with only 71 feet fronting onto Florida Avenue. Because of its previous use as a repair shop and gas and oil service station dating to the 1940s, the lot will require environmental remediation.
The developer, who did not respond to our contact by press time, will undertake remediation measures that include removal of five underground storage tanks, creation of a hazardous materials plan, and engineering controls in the design plan and during construction.
The architectural firm is PGN Architects.
The project is bounded by Florida Avenue to the south; Virginia Avenue to the west; Morse Street to the north; and Montello Avenue to the east. It is located to the west of the Gallaudet University campus, and less than one mile from the NOMA-Gallaudet Metro station.
The D.C. Board of Zoning Adjustment will hear the developer’s request for variances relating to density, height, rear yard and residential loading April 28. At a proposed 53 feet high, the building is three feet higher than would otherwise be allowed.
One thing Pierce is not looking for? Parking relief – the developer will provide the 27 parking spaces required by law, split eight surface and 19 underground.
