The Eighth Street Southeast Neighborhood Mixed-Use NC-6 Zone is located in along 8th Street, L Street, M Street, and Potomac Avenue, S.E. near the entrance to the Navy Yard on non-residentially zoned lots.
The purposes of the Eighth Street Southeast Neighborhood Mixed-Use zone (NC-6) are to:
- Encourage and allow new neighborhood-serving retail and service businesses and office development in close proximity to the Navy Yard, with emphasis on firms that will conduct business with the Navy, as well as neighborhood-serving retail and service businesses;
- Allow and encourage mixed-use development at a medium density, in the interest of securing economic development, while restricting building heights to a low level density to respect the historic scale of buildings and the entrance to the adjacent Navy Yard; and
- Provide for safe and efficient pedestrian movement by reducing conflicts between pedestrian and vehicular traffic, so as to improve access to retail.
