A 2015 rendering of the development.
Just over two years ago, EDENS, the owner of the Union Market building at 1309 5th Street NE (map) was granted approval for a planned-unit development (PUD) that would have added floors above the existing market (termed the “South building”) for residential or office use, as well as a larger permanent home for the Angelika Film Center. A second mixed-use building to the north (“North building”) was also proposed.
Now, EDENS is requesting a two-year extension for the approved PUD for the South building and apply for a second-stage PUD for the North building, possibly changing the uses of both.
The South building, originally planned to create residential units and a movie theater space atop the market, will be modified, likely for planned office use; the North building, originally planned as office space above retail, will be modified for residential use.
In documents filed with the Zoning Commission (ZC), the owner attested to several reasons for delays on the project, including the difficulties posed by not having secured a developer in a timely manner and not having a lender in place to finance the development. Additionally, the Film Center withdrew from the project in 2016, altering the necessary design of the South building.
If the Commission grants the PUD extension, the owner believes that the development team will be able to expedite an altered plan and ensure that the final project delivers sooner than anticipated.
