Sunrise files with the BZA

According to BizNews, the Sunrise and the Wisconsin Avenue Baptist Church (as the owner of the property) file the application for the facility with the Board of Zoning Adjustment.

“The church filed an application Thursday with the Board of Zoning Adjustments to build a four-story, 86-unit, continuing care retirement community on its 3920 Alton Place NW property.”

The files under consideration by the BZA are here. We will keep readers apprised of hearing schedules and changes in submissions. There are two neighbor groups that have received standing with the BZA, opposing the development.

At ANC meeting, neighbors object to the oversized Sunrise facility

Reprint of a piece in the Current on the status of the project.

Quote: “The proposed building was the object of heated debate at the Dec. 14 meeting of Advisory Neighborhood Commission 3E (Tenleytown, Friendship Heights).

“You don’t expect a neighbor to drill a 60-foot bore hole,” said John Allen-Gifford, one of several residents along 39th Street whose houses are immediately adjacent to the property. “You don’t expect a neighbor to build a parking garage with a 12-foot drop-off next to your house.”
