ANC2E Report Condo Redesign, Ein House, New Exec
Advisory Neighborhood Commission 2E held its monthly meeting on Sept. 2, as a few problems concerning new construction were worked out to most neighbors’ satisfaction.
• Owned by Mark and Sally Ein, the house at 2920 R St., NW, also known as the Beall-Washington House, got its plans OK’d for a new smaller eastern addition and underground garage by the ANC as well as an approval from the Citizens Association of Georgetown. The Eins’ neighbors due east of their house -- Jane and Calvin Cafritz -- objected to the designs.
• Meanwhile, the Alexander Memorial Baptist Church condos will have a three-unit repurposed church and a single home for the rectory building. The idea of a newly built third building was dropped with an Italian-style garden planned for the west side and front of the property.
• Liquor license applications or change requests for J. Paul’s (3218 M Street, NW), Myia pizza parlor (1419 Wisconsin Ave., NW) and Yummi Crayfish (1529 Wisconsin Ave., NW) were protected by the commissioners to the Alcohol Control Board.
• Look for the new working intersection at 35th Street and Wisconsin Avenue with its blinking lights soon to be come operational.
• Finally, executive director Melanie Gisler has moved to a new job and is succeeded by Leslie Maysak.
