Crucial step for controversial Dupont Circle church-residential development bid

From Washington DC-

The proposed pairing of a new St. Thomas' Episcopal Church near Dupont Circle with a seven-story residential building, a means for the parish to finally replace its historic sanctuary that burned to the ground more than 40 years ago, has advanced to a critical review stage.

Developer CAS Riegler, with St. Thomas Episcopal Parish, has filed an application with D.C.'s Board of Zoning Adjustment to obtain a single zoning variance for the controversial project, slated for 1772 Church St. NW. The property, totaling less than a third of an acre, is located three blocks from the Dupont Circle Metro station.
