No more new restaurants for U St.?
D.C.’s zoning administrator has issued a ruling that means the city will no longer grant new building permits for restaurants and bars along 14th and U streets NW, the Washington Business Journal reports.
On Monday, D.C. Zoning Administrator Matt LaGrant ruled that the city’s Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs will no longer grant building permits or certificates of occupancies for restaurants, bars, diners, coffee shops or carry-out business in the neighborhood because of existing zoning restrictions that only allow 25 percent of the area’s frontage be devoted to such establishments. The restrictions affect the Uptown Arts Overlay District, which includes 14th Street NW from N Street NW to Florida Avenue, U Street NW from Ninth Street NW to 15th Street NW, and some side streets.
