Foulger-Pratt Development and Torti Gallas Urban are planning to convert a warehouse near Union Market into a boutique hotel, 370 rental units and space for retail and offices.

As UrbanTurf reported in April, a planned-unit development is in the works for the Capital Self-Storage building at 301 N Street NE (map). Updated plans for the site, which are still in the conceptual phase, were shared last night before the ANC 6C Planning, Zoning, and Economic Development Committee. Foulger-Pratt now controls the entire parcel of land north of the alley between 3rd and 4th Streets, including the Granger building, which is set to be demolished to make way for the project.

Plans now call for roughly 20,000 square feet of retail on the first floor of the warehouse and along N Street NE. The upper two floors of the building, which feature high ceilings and wide-open spaces, will be either office or additional retail space. Two towers will abut the historic building; a tower along Third Street will be a boutique-style hotel with 150 to 175 rooms. The tower along N Street will be a multi-family rental property with about 370 units.

Foulger-Pratt plans to apply to have the warehouse recognized as a landmark, as the developers seek to preserve the sawtooth monitors on the roof and the overall industrial feel of the location. The facade of the warehouse will be rehabilitated, while selective demolition will create a large courtyard area with limited public access.

The planned development will put more residences on the boards in an area that has a number of projects in the works.
