Called Terraced houses in Almond Park, the proposed three-story project would be built on 1.5 acres on the northeast corner of the intersection of 1st Street and Summit Avenue NW. The owner behind the project is listed as Lashawna Williams by Carey Park Equity Fund I LLC, a state corporate filing show, was organized by a real estate investor Gregory Todey.

The development team is aiming to rezoning 1107 1st Street and 2387 Summit Avenue NW from single-family homes to multi-family homes, as the application shows. The latter lot contains a church building that used to house the congregation of the International House of Judah, while the lot on 1st Street is vacant after a single-family home was demolished last year. The church building is also to be demolished for the project, as a site plan shows.

The project team also includes home builders Kinglett houses and architect Lessard design.

The reallocation applicant had initially considered a 63-unit project, but reduced his plans according to the application documents after discussions with city planners and neighborhood representatives.

“The sum of all these changes results in a development that is close to the neighborhood and compatible with the surrounding single-family homes,” writes the development team.

A mix of 1,500 square foot three-bedroom and 2,500 square foot four-bedroom is planned with expected unit sales prices of $ 325,000 and $ 425,000, respectively. Each unit would have a two car garage and an additional 10 guest parking spaces would be provided by the development.

The community would also have a street landscape along Summit Avenue and 1st Street that has communal green space and a recreational area.

The developer expects to complete the project in 2024, according to the rezoning application.
