The Woodley Park Neighborhood Mixed-Use NC-5 Zone is located in the vicinity of the Woodley Park Metrorail Station on non-residentially zoned lots at the intersection of Connecticut Avenue and Calvert Street, N.W.
The purpose of the NC-5 Zone is to:
- Limit the height of new buildings; and
- Encourage a scale of development and a mixture of building uses that are in general compatible in scale with existing buildings in the Woodley Park neighborhood.
The NC-5 zone is intended to permit compact mixed-use development at a medium density with an emphasis on residential development.
