A 319-unit residential development abutting Howard University has been proposed for the intersection of Barry Place and Sherman Avenue NW. The six-story building at 907 Barry Place (map) would be 80 feet tall and include retail on Sherman.
Howard, which owns part of the site, plans to lease the space for the Sherman Avenue apartments to Ambling University Development Group. Ambling is collaborating with Gateway Partners, partial site-owner Pinak Mehta, and architect Niles Bolton Associates on the project, which will include 143 parking spaces on two levels and 12,000 square feet of retail. The development will include market-rate apartments, though Howard plans to push for more affordable housing than is required by the city as well as subsidized faculty housing in the building.
Plans for the apartment building include plenty of amenity space for residents, including a two-story roof deck with scenic views and perks including yoga rooms. The specifics of the building were sketched out at a meeting of the Bloomingdale Civic Association on Monday night
The development will require rezoning and a planned unit development (PUD) approved by the Zoning Commission to move forward. Executing the project would also involve permanently closing a public alley, a measure that needs the approval of Congress and usually takes about 14 months.
Ambling said on Monday that it will likely file a PUD with the Zoning Commission once it has presented the project to all community stakeholders, likely sometime in October or November.
