The house will remain a single-family home and the renovation "will not alter the light or air quality of the neighbors nor the historic character of the neighborhood", according to ANC2B's BZA resolution.
Both ANC2B resolutions were drafted by Commissioner Noah Smith (district 09). 1421 Swann Street is in Smith's district.
The improvement will fill in a dogleg at the rear of the property, but the house will not extend any further back than its neighbors. In addition, the home owners are reducing the size of a rear deck so that the house will fall below 70% lot occupancy and therefore will be eligible for expedited processing through the zoning bureaucracy.
