Two years after DC United awarded development rights to Hoffman & Associates for the site beside Audi Field, we are getting a look at what is planned.
The developer has applied for a modification of consequence and design review for Parcel B, between Potomac Avenue and S Street, from First to Half Streets SW (map). The project proposes a 130 foot-tall building with 462 residential units; 41,000 square feet of office space; and 50,400 square feet of ground-floor retail, restaurant, entertainment, and performing arts space.
The residential units will include 110 senior units affordable to households earning up to 30% and 50% of median family income (MFI) and 29 units affordable to households earning up to 60% of MFI. The development will also provide 305 parking spaces and 178 long-term bicycle spaces. STUDIOS Architecture and StudioMB are the designers.
While the development requires a design review, the modification application is seeking to adjust the boundaries of the parcel and the placement of the below-grade parking to compensate for a 30-foot Pepco easement. The modification also seeks to redesign First Street to make it curbless and pedestrian-forward, and to redesign the park/plaza at Potomac Avenue and Half Street to include more usable elements like sculptural seating and a splash pad.
The plans were presented at the ANC 6D meeting earlier in June; a Zoning Commission hearing has not yet been scheduled.
Note: The article has been updated since publication to include StudioMB on the architectural team.
