Rendering of the proposed development
A team led by TM Associates has applied to deliver an all-affordable, mixed-use development steps from the future site of the new DC United stadium.
The site in question is at First and Q Streets SW, which is currently the site of a single-story retail building and surface parking. The applicant proposes to construct a ten-story building with penthouse, creating 76 apartments atop 3,804 square feet of commercial space.
Of the apartments, 16 would be reserved for households earning up to 30 percent area median income (AMI) and the remainder would be reserved for households earning up to 50 percent AMI. The unit mix will be one studio, 48 one-bedrooms, 18 two-bedrooms and 9 four-bedrooms.
The building at 1542-1550 First Street SW (map) would be constructed to LEED Silver standards and will include 19 below-grade parking spaces and 26 bicycle spaces for the residents. PGN Architects is the designer on the project.
A rendering of a street view of the proposed development
United Planning Organization will provide wrap-around support services for residents both on- and off-site. Residents will also enjoy a ground-floor courtyard and another 941 square-feet of amenity space. Three commercial spaces would open onto First Street, one of which is likely to be a restaurant with patio seating.
The application was submitted to the Zoning Commission for design review; no hearing date has been scheduled as of yet. The team is also requesting an area variance to eliminate loading requirements, as there is no loading berth or delivery space provided for the development as proposed.
