Redevelopment of the McMillan Reservoir at Michigan Avenue and North Capitol Streets NW (map) may be back on track.
For more than two years, appeals have kept the planned-unit development (PUD) in limbo. However last week, the DC Court of Appeals, in its final decision on the PUD, affirmed that while the original PUD order offered insufficient justification for several provisions of the development, the response that the Zoning Commission issued on remand adequately addressed any outstanding concerns.
The PUD, helmed by Vision McMillan Partners (VMP), would divide the site into 7 parcels, delivering 146 townhouses, 531 apartments, eight acres of preserved open space, a community center, medical office buildings, and retail including a Harris Teeter grocery store. Roughly 15 percent of the residential square footage will be set aside as affordable housing. VMP is made up of Jair Lynch Real Estate Partners, EYA, Trammell Crow, and architects MV+A Architects, Shalom Baranes and Perkins Eastman.
Between this decision and the time extension granted earlier this year, the development team has until March 2021 to apply for building permits.
