Last summer, plans for an expanded Union Market were a bit in flux after a development partner dropped out. Now, as the city gears up for tennis atop the market building, EDENS is back with a new development partner and a new plan.
EDENS and new partner Gables Residential have filed plans for a 300-unit, 12-story mixed-use building (North building) at 1329 5th Street NE (map), behind the existing Union Market ("South") building. Hord Coplan Macht is the architect.
The project would include a new public plaza between the two buildings, as well as approximately 23,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial and PDR (production, distribution and repair) space. There would also be 3.5 below-grade levels of parking with 135 long-term bicycle spaces and 310 parking spaces for both the residences and for visitors to Union Market and other nearby buildings.
Eight percent of the apartments will be affordable units, with 20 percent for households earning up to 50 percent of median family income (MFI) and the remainder for households earning up to 80 percent MFI. Amenities will include indoor/outdoor space on the second level and a rooftop terrace with pool.
The new proposal is largely consistent with the approved first-stage PUD, except for the addition of penthouse amenity space. The previous proposal for the North building was for either 240 apartments, or office space.
If the project receives approvals in a timely manner, the development could break ground in the second quarter of 2020 and deliver 30 months later. A zoning hearing has not yet been scheduled.
