It seems as though every month a new residential development is proposed for the area around Union Market.

Late Monday, LCOR filed plans with the Zoning Commission for a 270-unit residential development with almost 20,000 square feet of retail for 500 and 530 Morse Street NE (map), a site adjacent to Gallaudet University and in front of Union Market. As proposed, the development will include underground parking for 160 to 245 cars. SK + I Architectural Design Group is the project architect.

The developer also included a smaller, alternative option in the plans, which would include 207 residential units, 14,400 square feet of retail and 124 to 189 parking spaces. The development site is currently home to two commercial buildings and parking lots.

If you are keeping count (and we are), this puts the number of residential units coming to the Union Market area at almost 1,500.
