New rendering of Douglas Development project.
Douglas Development has changed its course for a development plot in Hill East.
Despite previous plans to build a 21-unit residential building at 1442 Pennsylvania Avenue SE (map), Douglas will instead construct an office and retail project, ANC 6B Commissioner Brian Flahaven told UrbanTurf on Tuesday. The building will go up at the site of a former KFC, which will be razed today. Douglas Development’s Paul Millstein said that there are no tenants for the project yet.

Douglas plans to build a two-story building, though the roof will have usable space at the perimeter and a green element in the center. Previous plans called for a 21-apartment project with 2,600-square feet of retail space and seven parking spaces.
This changing direction of this project does not mean that Hill East will be without new residential development. Lock 7 Development has a 10-unit condo project on the boards and we hear that others are in the works.
