377-Unit Apartment Project Breaks Ground Next to Union Station: Figure 1
Rendering of 701 2nd Street NE

On Monday morning, officials gathered to ceremonially break ground at 701 2nd Street NE, a mixed-use development that will sit directly to the east of Union Station.

The Fisher Brothers project, which will include 377 apartments, 20,000 square feet of retail, and 309 underground parking spaces, is going up at the corner of 2rd Street and G Street NE (map). It will be 10 stories tall and feature mainly one bedroom and two bedroom rentals “tailored to individuals living alone or with roommates,” according to a press release. An estimated delivery date has not been announced.

This little strip of the city has been making real estate headlines of late. Just last week, UrbanTurf reported on the most recent plans for Uline Arena, which include 150,000 square feet of office space and 50,000 square feet of retail, including an Eataly-like concept.

    This is an exciting project, I think, because of the 2nd street retail and the connection of 2nd street to the H Street bridge via public stairway. Do you have any renderings or other details that spell out how that connection will be executed?

    the connection between NOMA and H ST NE is solidifying with this development and the U-line arena. The West end is becoming very dense, very quickly.

    Lovely, make the walk to the doctor's office much shorter to just go across the street. Kaiser isn't the world's most exciting neighbor.
