Eastbanc's West End Project is Really, Truly Happening
Rendering of new Eastbanc residences and library.
An activist effort to stop a long-planned project for DC’s West End ended earlier this month when the DC Court of Appeals denied a request from the group, led by Ralph Nader, to stop the development, The Washington Post reported Tuesday.
The decision, issued April 7, ends a three-year battle between the DC Library Renaissance Project and developer Eastbanc. The new project on the 2300 block of L Street NW (map) will feature about 170 luxury units, retail and a new library. As part of an agreement with the city, Eastbanc will build affordable rentals on top of a nearby fire station.
From The Post:
Anthony Lanier, EastBanc’s president, said he plans to break ground “as soon as possible” after finalizing his construction financing. Construction should be well underway on the site at 24th and L streets NW by summer’s end, he said.
Last August, the same court rejected an appeal by the group and ruled the development could move forward, but the Renaissance Project requested a rehearing of the case, which was denied.
UrbanTurf first took a look at the project in 2011. Here’s an initial rendering from that design:
Eastbanc was chosen to redevelop the sites in 2010. Once started, construction is expected to take about 27 months. The project was designed by New York and Mexico-based TEN Arquitectos.
