Latham Apartment Designs Gain Zoning Approval

Developers SB-Urban moved past their last major obstacle to build micro-residential units on the site of the Latham Hotel at 3000 M Street, which closed in 2012.

On Tuesday, SB-Urban was granted a series of zoning variances from the Board of Zoning Adjustments for their project.

According to an Urban Turf article, the requests were a rear yard variance for an addition, a special exception to a parking requirement that would allow the company to provide 42 off-site spaces, a variance for the remaining 74 parking spaces and a variance for a loading dock and delivery space.

The micro-unit project will create retail spaces in the front at the M Street sidewalk and will have 140 furnished apartments with an average size of 330-square-feet. There will also be 11,000-square-feet of shared-living spaces, like kitchens, laundry rooms and living rooms.

The lease agreement will prevent residents from parking on Georgetown streets, but residents will receive Capital Bikeshare and car share memberships.
