On the 500 block of Avenue H: soon to be demolished?

The planning commission and zoning hearing board recently approved the conversion of this building, the former Catholic War Vets, into a two-unit apartment building. There's no parking available on the property, and no setback on the Avenue H side. There's no exterior trash receptacle or dumpster. Trash will be stored in a compartment inside the building.
