Zoning Commission Unanimously Approves WhyHotel at 481-Unit Coast Guard Headquarters Conversion

Friday, July 31, 2020

Last fall, the development team behind the conversion of the Buzzard Point Coast Guard headquarters into a mixed-use residential project applied to convert some apartments into temporary WhyHotel units. This week, the Zoning Commission granted unanimous approval to the application despite opposition from ANC 6D…..

"DHCD does not object to the Modification of Significance, we do however want to recognize that the temporary lodging use is expressly a means to establish a higher rent market where one currently does not exist and would welcome IZ units in addition to those originally required so that a greater measure of affordability is retained as the market develops."

The development has eight inclusionary zoning (IZ) units at 60% and 50% of median family income (MFI).
