Nearly two years ago, DC's Office of the Deputy Mayor of Planning and Economic Development (DMPED) selected a development team for the 3.5-acre “Northwest One” parcel, located at North Capitol between K and L Streets NW (map). Now, the development team is halfway through the design process and getting ready to break ground.
CSG Urban, MRP Realty and SK+I Architecture have plans for a three-building, three-phase development which will deliver a total of 750 apartments and commercial space. The initial proposal would have been designed by Marshall Moya Design and would have delivered 806 apartments across three buildings in two phases; while Marshall Moya Design is no longer an entity, Michael Marshall Design remains on the design team.
Roughly 550 of the apartments will be affordable, including 211 replacement units for former residents of Temple Courts and Golden Rule Apartments. The first phase will be along L Street turning onto North Capitol, delivering a seven-story all-residential building with 221 units.
Over 150 of the units will be affordable, including 65 replacement units, and several of the apartments will be townhouse-style four-bedrooms. The building will also have two second-floor courtyards, and 10,000 square feet of frontage along L Street will be ceded in the effort to widen L Street to a 90-foot right-of-way, bringing it into alignment with L Street east of North Capitol. The Northwest One development team is also coordinating their efforts with Toll Brothers across the street at the Sursum Corda redevelopment.
The development team is currently making the rounds with the community, having presented their plans at the ANC 6E meeting on Tuesday night, and plan to share the plans with former Temple Courts residents at a September 14th meeting. The first phase could break ground in the first quarter of 2020.
The article has been updated to clarify the design team.
