As the team behind a new mixed-use project at DC's Audi Field files a design review application, more renderings and perspectives are coming to the fore.
Hoffman & Associates recently applied for design review for the new project at Parcel B, which sits just adjacent to the DC United soccer stadium at Buzzard Point (map). The project proposes a 130 foot-tall, S-shaped building with 463 residential units; 41,000 square feet for the office headquarters of non-profit Volunteers of America (VOA); and 50,450 square feet of ground-floor retail, restaurant, entertainment, and performing arts space. StudioMB and STUDIOS Architecture are the designers.
The residential units will include 111 independent-living senior units affordable to households earning up to 30% and 50% of median family income (MFI), run by VOA. This portion of the building will front S Street; the VOA headquarters will be above the retail and below both portions of the residential. Another 29 units will be affordable to households earning up to 60% of MFI. The development will also provide 305 parking spaces and 178 long-term bicycle spaces across two below-grade levels.
A pending zoning application for the site in part aims to redesign First Street to make it a curbless, pedestrian-forward "outdoor room", and to redesign the 5,653 square-foot park/plaza at Potomac Avenue and Half Street to include more usable elements like sculptural seating and a splash pad.
A Zoning Commission hearing has not yet been scheduled.
