Mid-City Scales Back Brookland Manor Expansion

The DC Office of Planning, Zoning Commission and residents have deemed Mid-City Financial Corp.'s Brookland Manor apartment complex expansion "too intense." The developer was told to scale back the plans, which included an additional 2,235 residential units and 202k SF of retail. The new plan, scheduled for review on May 7, has slimmed-down by 21%, cutting about 500 units, Curbed reports. Now the eight blocks and 1.9M SF of new development will include 1,760 residential units, 384 of which will be designated for affordable housing, and 181k SF of retail. Buildings that were initially designed to be up to 90 feet high will now be under 65 feet. Right now, Brookland Manor consists of 525 apartments in 19 apartment buildings. [Curbed]
