A few months after we first saw the major residential plans that Douglas Development has in the works across the street from Dave Thomas Circle, the project is now rendered in full color.
Douglas is planning to construct a 13-story, 557-unit project that would be sited on the triangular parking lot at First Street and New York Avenue NE (map). The building will have 10,550 square feet of ground-floor retail along with 264 parking and 120 bicycle storage spaces on two below-grade levels. HOK Architects is the designer.
While a subdivision application is pending, the developer is aiming for a special exception to permit a 5,687 square-foot, publicly-accessible restaurant/bar, with outdoor seating, on the penthouse level. The penthouse would also include seven residential units and a rooftop infinity pool.
The site is zoned D-5 for high-density mixed-use, so the project is otherwise by-right and does not require Inclusionary Zoning units; the developer would also contribute $300,000 to the Housing Production Trust Fund to account for the project's use of habitable penthouse space. ANC 5E voted in favor of supporting the development last month.
A zoning hearing is scheduled for later this month. Additional renderings are below.
