In the intervening two months, members of the ANC negotiated, to the surprise of many, a “memorandum of understanding” with Cafritz, in which the landowner agrees to embark on a “major redesign,” reduce the height of the building by two feet, install a circular driveway, provide 40 additional parking spaces, install additional landscaping, provide two car-share spaces and a Capital Bikeshare station and include a slate of sustainability features—green roof technology, plantings, Energy Star appliances, and so on.Neighborhood commissioners approved the redesign at a meeting Tuesday night, a decision that sent the building's opponents into a tizzy. Now, according to a recap by the Georgetown Dish, members of the 5333 Connecticut Neighborhood Coalition are complaining that Cafritz's planned development is driving a post-modern wedge through the Chevy Chase community. They're also distributing fliers calling the proposed modifications "lipstick on a pig." The District's Board of Zoning Adjustment will review the proposed modifications on Sept. 24, but they might not have to be implemented. The ANC's participation in the negotiations is non-binding. Meanwhile, the coalition opposing the new apartment building continue to call it an "illegal" addition to the neighborhood.
