The large new residential development proposed near the Takoma Metro station got a key approval on Thursday.
DC's Historic Preservation Review Board approved the 435-unit mixed-use project planned at Eastern Avenue and Cedar Street NW (map) following a few design changes by developer EYA.
A large part of the Moya Design Partners-designed development will be two acres of open space split across a public park along Eastern Avenue and an activated retail plaza with terraced steps at the Metro entrance along Carroll Street. Approximately 15% of the residential units have been set aside as affordable.
The development team has also filed a Planned Unit Development (PUD) for the project that will also need to be approved by the DC Zoning Commission.
