East of the River residents have often objected to the high concentration of affordable housing in Wards 7 and 8, but a new development seeks to inject some market-rate activity into one of Southeast’s major corridors.

Plans were filed with the Board of Zoning Adjustment to subdivide the lots at 2495 Alabama Avenue SE (map) and replace the vacant apartment complex on the site with 30 market-rate apartments. Oella Design Studio designed the project.

The design calls for a three-story building with 19 one-bedroom and 11 two-bedroom rental units, all of which will have balconies or outdoor space. The 22,700 square-foot project would also deliver at least 11 parking spaces on a surface lot. The walk-up building will also have a green roof.
