Hanover Company is adding a large project to the Brookland pipeline.
The developer is working on a planned unit development (PUD) application to enable a sprawling two-phase, three-building mixed-use project southwest of Reed and Franklin Streets NE (map), The Brookland Bridge reported. The development will deliver 700 residential units along with retail and makerspace. An alley from Reed Street will also be widened to 30-50 feet with 10 foot-wide sidewalks, with building courtyards facing the space to create a mews-like experience.
The seven-story first phase will deliver 400 units between Reed Street and the railroad tracks, and the second phase will deliver 300 units straddling Reed Street at Franklin Street. The unit mix will include three-bedrooms and over 100 of the units will be affordable to households earning up to 60% of median family income. There will also be up to 350 parking spaces in the development. hord coplan macht is the architect.
The PUD will also include a map amendment to rezone the parcels from PDR-2 (industrial, makerspace) to MU-4 and MU-6 (moderate- and medium- to high-density mixed-use, respectively). The developer shared the plans at meetings of ANC 5B and the Brookland Neighborhood Civic Association and at another on-site community meeting last month.
The development team expects to file the PUD application by February. Hanover also has a 375-unit project under construction further north. Additional renderings are below.
