In November, UrbanTurf reported on a development in the works next to the Metrorail tracks in Brookland. Now, a zoning application is shedding more light on the plans for the project.
Hanover Company has filed a planned unit development (PUD) and a map amendment that would enable a two-phase project in Brookland (map), delivering 723 apartments and roughly 18,000 square feet of makerspace. The three-building development, designed by hord coplan macht, will be bisected by a realigned Reed Street NE.
The 84 foot-tall first phase would deliver 420 apartments west of Reed Street (Building I), and the second phase would connect this building, via an amenity bridge, to a structure of the same height (Building IIA), delivering 205 apartments above 8,160 square feet of makerspace at the corner of Evarts and Reed Streets. The second phase would also include a 65 foot-tall building delivering 98 apartments above 10,240 square feet of makerspace fronting Franklin Street (Building IIB).
Reed Street will have extra-wide sidewalks and is envisioned as the development's "living room", able to be closed off during pop-up events and a seasonal farmer's market. Each of the buildings will have at least one courtyard, and two will have pools. The development will also include 332 parking spaces and 189 long-term bicycle spaces.
The development would also include 105 to 110 Inclusionary Zoning units, with 5% of the square footage for households earning up to 30% and 50% of area median income (AMI), 80% for households earning up to 60% AMI, and 10% for households earning up to 80% AMI. At least one apartment in each phase will be a three-bedroom.
The lots that comprise the 156,653 square-foot site are primarily zoned PDR-2 ("production, distribution and repair"). The map amendment would rezone the southwest leg of the site to MU-6A (medium- to high-density mixed-use) and the northeast corner of the site to MU-4 (moderate-density mixed-use).
The development application also requests that the "makerspace" include such uses as food and beverage consumption, recreation, and arts/ entertainment.
A zoning hearing has not yet been scheduled; additional renderings are below.
