Zoning Handbook

The WR-3 zone is intended to:

  • Provide for moderate- to medium-density commercial and residential development that activates Georgia Avenue frontage through enhanced ground-floor retail opportunities, a more uniform street wall, and publicly accessible plazas;
  • Maintain a sensitive scale of development in relation to properties on the east side of Georgia Avenue as appropriate; and
  • Preserve existing and encourage new green and open space to activate the site, and to allow for recreation opportunities as appropriate.
