Rendering of 501 H Street NE
A 26-unit residential project with retail space is planned for the H Street Corridor, as Douglas Development has firmed up plans for a site it owns on the bustling strip.
About a year ago, UrbanTurf reported on Douglas’ initial plans for 501 H Street NE (map), which included a 32-unit residential building and a three-story, 30,000 square-foot retail space, possibly with a furniture store as the tenant.
Now those plans have changed. The city’s ubiquitous developer will construct a six-story, mixed-use project, designed by Antunovich Associates, with two floors of retail and four levels of residential units. There will be 26 apartments in total, although that number could change, according to documents submitted to the Zoning Commission. A handful of units will be set aside for those making 80 percent of the area median income (AMI).
The apartments will be primarily junior one-bedrooms and one-bedrooms, ranging in size from 598 to 896 square feet. There will also be a few two-bedrooms, and one three-bedroom unit on the third floor.
Douglas is asking for a number of variances for the site, including for parking. Based on the proposed residential and retail components, 23 parking spaces are required. The developer is seeking flexibility to provide eight parking spots instead.
Douglas purchased the site from the H Street Community Development Corporation last year after JAIR LYNCH scuttled plans to build a 48-unit project at the site.
