Plans for a 130-Unit, Mixed-Use Project in Adams Morgan Scrapped: Figure 1

Peak Development’s plans for a mixed- and adaptive-use building at 1711 Florida Avenue NW are off the table.

On Wednesday, Kettler announced its purchase of the property at 1711 Florida Avenue NW (map), which had been slated for redevelopment into a 130-unit apartment project for years. A parking garage, dog daycare and a music studio currently lease the building, which used to be Verizon’s vehicle maintenance facility.

The address was previously slotted for redevelopment into The Park at Florida by Peak Development and Bonstra Haresign. That project would have included an adaptive reuse of the existing parking garage structure, 6,000 square feet of retail space on the first floor and approximately 130 residential units. Here’s what it might have looked like:

We checked in with Kettler and those plans are kaput. Coco Lyons, the company’s spokeswoman, said Kettler has “no affiliation with the previous development or its proposed plans.” The company has yet to determine what they’ll build in the space.

“We have not finalized our plan for development as of yet,” Lyons told UrbanTurf. “The ultimate product will reflect the market needs as well as that of the community.”
