Former H Street Salvation Army to become 27 condos

D.C.’s Board of Zoning Adjustment Tuesday approved plans for a six-story, 27-unit condo building planned for 1371-1375 H Street NE, the site of a former Salvation Army thrift store.

Developer New Legacy Partners had sought BZA approval for the project due to its lack of provided parking. Normally 14 parking spaces would be required for this building and the project is proposing zero spaces.

In lieu of parking, New Legacy Partners will give all condo buyers for the first five years a free Capital Bikeshare and Zipcar membership, and provide free bike helmets to the initial purchasers of each unit.

The condos are a mix of studios, roughly 450 square feet each, one-bedrooms, 660-730 square feet each, and one two-bedroom at 1250 square feet and a one-bedroom with den at about the same size. The building also has 2500 square feet of retail on the ground floor.

New Legacy Partners, a Chevy Chase-based development firm, focuses on “sustainability and Smart Growth,” according to its website, and director Ron Eichner is a “Champion” with the Coalition for Smarter Growth.
