Douglas Development is planning a 557-unit project on the triangular parking lot at First Street and New York Avenue NE (map). The building will have 10,280 square feet of ground-floor retail and 264 parking and 120 bicycle storage spaces on two below-grade levels.

The developer has applied for a special exception to permit a 5,687 square-foot restaurant/bar on the penthouse level. The site is zoned D-5 for high-density mixed-use, so the project is otherwise by-right. Amenities will include a rooftop infinity pool.

HOK Architects is the designer. A zoning hearing has not yet been scheduled.
