A residential development planned near Union Market with a design that is reminiscent of an iconic building in New York received a key approval earlier this week. 

The DC Zoning Commission approved the 12-story, 115-unit affordable development at 301 Florida Avenue NE (map) on Monday. The building, from a development team that includes The NRP Group and Marshall Heights Community Development Organization, was designed by PGN Architects in the style of New York's Flatiron building.

The units in the mixed-use rental building will be affordable to income levels at 30% and 50% area median income (AMI). The new building will have 3,000 square feet of ground-floor retail, and amenities on the second floor including a toddler room, a library/computer lab and a gym. 

Previous plans for 301 Florida Avenue NE called for an eight-story, 56-unit building with units as large as four-bedrooms.
