CHASE NEIGHBORHOOD PATTERN BOOK
District of Columbia Office of Planning
This Pattern Book represents one element of a larger effort by the District of Columbia Office of Planning to provide a strong basis for redevelopment within the Congress Heights, Anacostia, and Saint Elizabeths (CHASE) communities. The Pattern Book is based on buildings in the Anacostia Historic District, but it has broad applicability in all the CHASE neighborhoods. It conforms to local zoning, which sets out the legal requirements for development, and it provides additional design guidance to encourage infill that respects existing neighborhood fabric.
This document is intended primarily for developers planning to build infill housing on vacant lots, but it may also prove useful for homeowners interested in rehabilitating their homes.
