Jair Lynch Real Estate Partners seeks to rezone the Property from MU-3/R-1-B to MU-4,  making it consistent with the Low-Density Commercial land use designation of the Comprehensive Plan that is intended for low- to moderate-density residential areas with access to main roadways or rapid transit stops, and would permit mixed-use development providing facilities for shopping, office, and housing. If approved, the MU-4 zoning would permit a maximum building height of 50 feet, a maximum density of 2.5 FAR (3.0 FAR with Inclusionary Zoning), and a maximum permitted lot occupancy of 60% for residential uses (75% with Inclusionary Zoning). 

The 3.6 acre property located at the northeast corner of the intersection of Pennsylvania Avenue, SE and Branch Avenue, SE, is currently home to the Penn Branch Shopping Center and associated surface parking lots.
