Thank you to all those who provided feedback online and in-person at the Community Design Conversations in Tenleytown and Friendship Heights. Stay tuned for upcoming project updates (sign up for the project email list, below).





The Wisconsin Avenue Development Framework is a neighborhood planning effort focused on the Friendship Heights and Tenleytown neighborhoods and is part of a broader Rock Creek West Corridors Planning initiative outlined in the 2021 Rock Creek West Roadmap. The planning process is led by the Office of Planning (OP) and is intended to implement the Comprehensive Plan Act of 2021, particularly where land use designations have been updated along Wisconsin Avenue.


The Wisconsin Avenue Development Framework will provide specific guidance on possible zoning changes consistent with the Comprehensive Plan that can deliver additional housing capacity in this high-opportunity, mixed-use corridor. This guidance will inform potential Zoning Map Amendments or Planned Unit Developments. The Wisconsin Avenue Development Framework will also provide guidance on a commercial action strategy focused on Friendship Heights and a public realm plan for the entire study area.
