200 Micro Units to Florida Avenue?

200 Micro Units to Florida Avenue?: Figure 1
Early rendering of JBG’s plans for 965 Florida Avenue NW.

JBG’s mixed-use proposal for a highly sought-after plot of land near Florida Avenue and 9th Street NW would include 200 micro units.

On Wednesday afternoon, the Post’s Jonathan O’Connell tweeted out the two proposals in contention for parcels at and around 965 Florida Avenue NW (map). One came from a team including MRP Realty and Ellis Development Group, and the second from a team of JBG, Gragg & Associates and Moddie Turay Comapany.

While the proposal from the MRP and Ellis team essentially consisted of renderings, the JBG-led proposal was fairly descriptive. The list of plans for the site include: a 125-room hotel, 30,000 square feet of office space, a previously-reported Harris Teeter, 20,000 square feet of retail, 150 condos, 250 apartments and 200 micro units.

The most notable aspect of the proposal (at least from UrbanTurf’s perspective) is the inclusion of 200 micro units. We have reached out to JBG to confirm that the numbers in the proposal are accurate.

The Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development could decide on the winning proposal as soon as next month, so stay tuned.

    I'd love to see micro-units come to DC. Would the micro-units be for purchase or rental?

    The last thing we need is more condos! If DC owns this land (and I presume they do if developers are bidding for it), we need to turn it into a park or athletic field. We're plenty short of parkspace.

    Toomuch, Banneker Rec Center, with a track, baseball field, outdoor pool, and tennis courts, is literally one block from the site. There is absolutely no reason to use this valuable, Metro-adajacent land for open space.

    Agree with youandmemakethree.com. Very cool to see more units this size coming to the city. I think these are usually rentals.

    When is construction supposedly going to begin on this? Looks great and microunits will be a wonderful addition to the area.

    Jay, There is no timeline in place for this plot, but the city is planning on choosing one of the two final proposals in May. Mark Wellborn Editor

    Surely Toomuch is making some kind of joke that's going over our heads....
