St. Thoms Church renderings, photo via http://stthomasdc.org/building-project/Dupont Circle residents will have another opportunity to discuss the planned St. Thomas Church development.

Locals can speak their mind at an upcoming public input meeting in the west wing room of the Embassy Row Hotel (2015 Massachusetts Ave. NW) this Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. During the meeting, attendees will be able to discuss concerns and items for future consideration with the ANC’s zoning, preservation and development committee members in small groups.

As it stands, the project calls for the construction of a new church and a seven-story housing building. Though neighbors and developers have clashed over the proposed height of the development — among other things — the Historic Preservation Review Board voted to approve the project voted 4 to 1 to approve the project in July. Last month, Washington Business Journal reported that the project “advanced to a critical review stage” when the developer applied to obtain a single zoning variance for the project.
