A New Application Paints a Better Picture of 498-Unit Development Near the Wharf
A month after the public saw the latest plans to redevelop the site of the former Department of Agriculture building a block off the Wharf, the project is moving through the zoning process.
Jair Lynch Real Estate Partners has filed a planned unit development (PUD) application 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.

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 residential entry will recessed on 9th Street, creating a "landscaped entry court".
"The grade elevation change between the public sidewalk and the lobby presents an opportunity for this pedestrian access to become very engaging, universally accessible, and a visually dynamic juxtaposition of landscape plant beds, low walls, rich materials, and lighting," the application explains. Perkins Eastman is the architect and Land Design is the landscape architect.
A zoning hearing has not yet been scheduled.
