Capital City Real Estate is about to start work on a 25-unit condo project at 301 H Street NE (map).
On Wednesday night, the developers stopped by the ANC 6C Planning and Zoning Committee meeting to brief the group on the matter-of-right project. We reported on the development when it was announced last year; now the project is in the permitting stages and should be break ground in about three months.
Architect Norman Smith designed the six-story building (see rendering above), which sits across the street from 360˚ H Street and the soon-to-open Giant. The units will be one- and two-bedrooms, and construction is estimated to take nine to twelve months.

In other news for that area, Douglas Development came to the meeting to seek approval for their latest design for the Uline Arena redevelopment, now dubbed The Coliseum, in the 1100 block of 3rd Street NE (map). Douglas hopes to bring 50,000 square feet of retail and 150,000 square feet of office space to the unique curved structure. The retail will be divided between small retailers facing 3rd Street NE and one 40,000-square foot vendor facing Delaware Avenue NE — ideally an “Eataly-like” vendor, with a market, restaurant and bar concept.
Architect Kevin Sperry from Antunovich Associates spoke to the changes they have made since meeting with the Historic Preservation Office and and the Preservation League.

Since we last reported on it, Douglas has slightly pulled down the roof of the non-domed section, created accessible roof terraces, changed the materials of the parking garage to modern-looking metals, and pulled back protuberances from the domed roof. “Instead of volume coming out of the roof, it is coming in,” said Sperry. Douglas expects the design to keep changing slightly as they meet with the Historic Preservation Review Board.
The developers have already begun their site review, and believe that restoring the iconic domed roof will be their biggest challenge. “When you see daylight though it, it’s not a good sign,” said Douglas’ Paul Millstein.
