A huge new residential development is on the boards for DC's Bellevue neighborhood, UrbanTurf has learned.
Kaye Stern Development and Bensahel Capital have plans to construct a new four-building complex with 821 apartments between Martin Luther King, Jr. Avenue and Fort Greble Park SW (map). The development, designed by Eric Colbert and Associates, will replace four, 2-3 story apartment buildings and bring nearly 675 more residences to the site.
The four existing buildings will be razed in phases, and the new buildings will be constructed to accommodate current and future residents. The four buildings in the new development will rise five stories with a total of 276 underground parking spaces and approximately 315 bicycle parking spaces. The apartments will be a mix of studio to three-bedroom units with 17% set aside as inclusionary zoning.
In addition to standard amenities like a gym and business center, the development will have an on-site daycare, as well as a large "social garden" in the middle of the buildings that will include seating, lawn panels and an outdoor amphitheater.
The development team, which has submitted plans to DC's Zoning Commission, hopes to begin construction of the first building by 2025 with new buildings starting 18-24 months after that.
