As the redevelopment of the former Department of Agriculture building a block off DC's Wharf moves forward, a few new renderings have been unveiled.
Earlier this year, Jair Lynch Real Estate Partners filed plans for a development that will deliver 498 apartments above 22,600 square feet of retail at 899 Maine Avenue SW (map). The building will be 100-120 feet tall and will include 244 parking spaces and 110 long-term bicycle spaces. Perkins Eastman is the architect and Land Design is the landscape architect.
Amenities will include a rooftop pool and a south-facing courtyard above the double-height retail. Fifteen percent of the residential space will be affordable at 60% of median family income, and the unit mix will span from studios to three-bedrooms.
The new development will go before the Zoning Commission in the fall. More new renderings below.
