Dear Shakespeare Theatre: No Thanks

Out Damned Developer and SnowYesterday, over 50 neighbors in the immediate vicinity of 501 I Street SW objected to Shakespeare Theatre’s plans to filing a zoning application for the site. The zoning change Shakespeare Theatre is seeking would permit them and their developer, Erkiletian Development Corporation, to build a 7-story building at 501 I Street. By signing onto the letter linked here, neighbors objected to the various mis-statements in Shakespeare Theatre’s Notice of Intent to File a Zoning Application, and we advised Shakespeare Theatre to refrain from submitting their Planned Unit Development (PUD) at this time. This strong show of neighborhood support for more sensible development at 501 I Street SW came just 24 hours after one of the biggest snowfalls Southwest D.C. has ever seen!
