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.
