The latest renderings for the project.
Douglas Development has updated its plans for an additional retail space in front of the Hecht Warehouse in Ivy City.
The majority of the massive redevelopment project at 1401 New York Avenue NE (map) has already been approved by the Zoning Commission, and much of the retail at the project is already open, including a Nike store. But this spring, Douglas filed an application with the Zoning Commission to add on to the ambitious project, and the proposed building is on the verge of approval.

The proposed 8,000 square foot building would sit in front of the main warehouse, where a large driveway is located, and would serve a retail use, with renderings suggesting a coffee shop or restaurant in the space. Antunovich Associates is the architect on the project, which will head before the Commission for final approval next Monday. The building would sit between the private driveway, Hecht Avenue and Okie Street.
The latest, and likely final, renderings of the project include a green wall and slight changes to the originally-submitted design in response to commissioners’ concerns. The architect is aiming to make the new building “a modern, noticeable counterpart to the iconic, historic warehouse,” according to a letter to the Commission.
The rendering was first proposed in a reddish hue:

The full Hecht Warehouse redevelopment project plans were approved a year ago, and include about 340 nearly-completed rental units, along with 196,000 square feet of retail. The upper floors of a second warehouse building, which includes a Planet Fitness, Bicycle SPACE and Mom’s Organic Market, will have its upper floors used as a 900-space parking garage for now. It may later be adapted into more rental units.
