The largest development on the boards for the H Street Corridor will go before DC's Board of Zoning Adjustment tomorrow.
Last spring, WestMill Capital Partners (WCP) unveiled plans for a roughly 210-unit apartment project at the AutoZone site at 1207 H Street NE (map). The block-long development, designed by PGN Architects + Michael Graves Architecture, will have approximately 11,000 square feet of retail space, and will largely consist of one-bedroom apartments, with a handful of studios and two-bedrooms. To activate the alley space behind the project, the plan is to have mews-like residential units with front yards and green space.
Last year, WestMill Capital received approval from DC's Zoning Commission for a map amendment to rezone the H Street site as NC-15, enabling medium density mixed-use development with an emphasis on employment and arts and arts-related uses.
The map amendment triggered the city's IZ-plus requirements mandating that 20% of the rental residential square footage of the new development be affordable for households earning up to 60% of area median income. So approximately 40 of the apartments will fit this requirement.
