Howard University is moving forward with plans to build a 319-unit mixed-use development at the intersection of Barry Place and Sherman Avenue NW. The six-story building at 907 Barry Place (map) would have about 11,500 square feet of retail space along with 145 parking spaces. Ambling University Development is the primary developer of the property and, despite the firm’s name, the project would include plenty of market-rate units. The project architect is Niles Bolton Associates.
The applicant filed a planned unit development (PUD) with the Zoning Commission on Monday evening. To be allowed to develop the property, Howard would need to succeed in getting the land rezoned as C-2-B. Though the property has more than the required number of parking spots and tops out 10 feet under the maximum allowable height under C-2-B, it would exceed lot occupancy requirements, along with some other provisions.
The building is essentially square-shaped with a closed court in the center with a pool and seating areas within. Other amenities would include a business center, a large exercise room, a community room and a top-floor patio, and there is expected to be a green roof. Howard says it will reserve 10 percent of the homes for people earning 80 percent or less of the area’s median income, more than required. Some of the units will be reserved for Howard University faculty and staff, according to the PUD.
