Rendering of 301 Florida Avenue NE.
Among the complaints related to new residential development in the city is that the number of family-sized units being built are few and far between. A new project near Union Market is hoping to change that.
Ditto Residential and Zusin Development have a 56-unit residential building on the boards for 301 Florida Avenue NE (map) that will forego the usual mix of one- and two-bedroom units in favor of three- and four-bedroom rentals, and a handful of studios.
“There is real demand in DC for family housing, so we are aiming to fill that void with larger, family-sized units at 301 Florida,” Ditto’s Dan Roth told UrbanTurf. “Also with the slew of apartments and condos coming to the NoMa/Union Market area, most of which are one and two bedrooms, we are hoping that our unit mix will help differentiate the building.” All told, there are over 1,150 units on the boards for the Union Market area.
The three- and four-bedroom units at 301 Florida will have a bedroom/bathroom mix seen often in single-family homes around the city with just two bathrooms, and a master bedroom surrounded by smaller bedrooms.
The planned project, which will go before the Zoning Commission later this month, will rise on a triangular plot currently the site of a liquor store and a Penske truck depot. Dep Designs is the architect for the new development, which is slated to begin construction in the latter part of this year.
