4th Street and Florida Avenue NE
A project with either 200 apartments or hotel rooms could finally be moving forward on a plot adjacent to Union Market.
On Thursday, ANC 6C Commissioner Tony Goodman tweeted that EDENS, who developed Union Market, and Sang Oh Choi, whose family controls much of the surrounding land, are preparing to file an application for a six-story, mixed-use project with ground-level retail below residential or hotel units. Goodman told UrbanTurf that he expects an application for the development to be filed within the next 10 days.
Currently, Union Market is a one of the only new buildings in the raw warehouse district known as Florida Avenue Market. But, as Jonathan O’Connell reported in December, the developers have bigger plans in mind:
Landowners in the 24-acre wholesale market district in Northeast D.C. are laying the groundwork for an extensive new effort to redevelop more of the existing warehouses and wholesale storefronts into upscale housing and shopping.
In the article, O’Connell reported that EDENS and the Choi family were hoping to break ground on a 175- to 200-unit apartment project by the end of 2012. If this is that project, it will be located at the corner of Florida Avenue and Fourth Street NE. For years, the barren space has had a sign on it that said “Pretty soon, you won’t recognize this place. Promise.”
