When plans for the Washington Gateway development at New York and Florida Avenues were first approved over a decade ago, the project was envisioned as a residential/hotel building and an office building with ground-floor retail. Since then, the hotel use was removed and the Elevation at Gateway residential-over-retail building has delivered.
Now, the plans for the second phase of Washington Gateway are coming into focus.
The second phase will consist of a 130 foot-tall building with a North and South tower. The North Tower was previously approved as 372 residential units, while the South Tower was approved for office use with the option of converting to residential prior to delivery. The development team is applying for a modification that would confirm residential use for the final portion of the development.
Located where the Metropolitan Branch Trail intersects with Florida Avenue NE (map), the 15-story South Tower will deliver approximately 241 apartments above approximately 3,000 square feet of commercial space. This building will also have a "lobby" to the trail.
The unit mix will include 13 studios, 103 one-bedrooms, and 125 two-bedrooms; one of the studios, 8 of the one-bedrooms and 10 of the two-bedrooms will be for households earning up to 60 percent of median family income. Two below-grade parking levels will provide 76 parking spaces.
The trail lobby will have bike ramps, trail maps, water fountains and a bike repair area, as well as a manual roll-down security gate.
Designed by SK&I Architecture, Washington Gateway is the result of a partnership between land-owner WMATA and developer MRP Realty. A zoning hearing is not required for approval of the modification; rather, the modification application is a prerequisite for acquiring building permits for a residential building at the South Tower site.
