  • Location of Property: 1439 Rhode Island Ave. NW, Lots 93, 94, 833, 834 and 1439 Rhode Island Ave. in Square 210 NW

Summary of Decision:

Applicant sought a permit for subdivision of five lots into a single lot of record. One of the five original lots (Lot 836) contained one of seven non-contiguous residential buildings comprising the Rhode Island Residential Buildings individual landmark. The Mayor's Agent found that the proposed project, which included restoration of the landmark, was consistent with the purposes of the Act and thus necessary in the public interest.

Consistent with the Purposes of the Act :

The Mayor's Agent found that the proposed subdivision of five lots, including one that contained part of the landmark Rhode Island Residential Buildings, was consistent with the purposes of the Act and therefore necessary in the public interest. Factors in the Mayor's Agent's decision included the lack of construction above or below the landmark building, the planned restoration of the landmark building, and the testimony of an architectural historian demonstrating the necessity of the subdivision in order to restore the exterior of the landmark structure.

Historic Preservation Review Board :

The subdivision of Applicant's four vacant lots with a fifth lot housing a part of the landmark Rhode Island Residential Buildings extended the Historic Preservation Review Board's review authority to all new construction on the newly-formed record lot.
