Zoning Board Says Yes to Variance for Evermay

The Board of Zoning Adjustment approved S&R Foundation’s request to use Evermay, the historic, 3.75-acre estate at 28th and R Streets, for its headquarters. Evermay will maintain the non-profit’s offices for nine employees as well as serve as a residence for Sachiko Kuno and Ryuji Ueno, founders of S&R as well as leaders of Bethesda’s Sucampo biopharmaceutical company, one of several sponsors of the National Cherry Blossom Festival. S&R Foundation, which has promised neighbors of Evermay minimal events, strictly controlled within its grounds, is also set to complete its purchase of historic Halcyon House on Prospect Street soon.
