The 1,458 New Units Coming to the H Street Corridor

by Nena Perry-Brown

Rendering of 1401 Florida Avenue NE.

It has been over a year since we did a deep dive into the residential developments on tap for the H Street Corridor, and during that time a number of new projects have been announced. In October 2014, we calculated that 1,076 units were in the works for the H Street Corridor and nearby blocks. Since then a few of those developments have delivered while others have been announced, adding another 400 units to last year’s total.

Below, we look at those developments from west to east. (Two developments below are in Trinidad, but we deemed them close enough to the corridor to include.)

Fortis anticipates that units will be available starting this fall.

The Apollo, a 430-unit apartment project from Insight Development Group at 600 H Street NE (map), plans to open its doors this fall. The biggest draw of the building may be that it will be anchored by a Whole Foods, but it will also have a rooftop dog run and pool as well as a movie terrace.

    H Street’s truly on the move. These are wild times in local real estate and this is a great look at the announced pipeline.

    Make sure to check out Havana in the corridor as well - there’s 49 1 & 2 Bedrooms coming soon to 1215 K St NE. Construction is proceeding as planned & we’re on schedule for an upcoming preview!

  1. The Hill is Home said at 10:16 am on Saturday July 9, 2016:

    H Street redevelopment is long welcome, but it must proceed in a way that is compatible with the surrounding historic neighborhood. Century-old brick homes can’t take the incessant vibration of huge trucks cutting through the neighborhood. If District officials can’t mitigate these problems by banning transit of huge trucks and excessive rush hour traffic on side streets in the Historic District, it’s time to think seriously about clamping down on development which exacerbates traffic problems. Let’s preserve our historic neighborhood.
