EDENS has big plans to expand its imprint on the Union Market neighborhood.
The proposed 567,840 square-foot planned unit development (PUD) would include two 130-foot tall buildings, one office and one residential building with roughly 360 units, connected by a "rooftop plane". The development would also include ground floor retail and PDR/makerspace uses, and it would meet inclusionary zoning requirements. There would be 300 parking spaces across three below grade levels.
"We're very, very, very early on in the process, and it's a big lift to get this through all of the agency approvals; it's kind of a unique project for DC," Chowfla explained.
The concept for the rooftop plane is that it would be publicly-accessible via elevators and may include garden, recreational, or food/beverage offerings.
"One idea that we had was we could have a bridge across and then open it up so that there would be a large public space that you could go up to, creating a kind of gateway to the neighborhood," Gregg Pasquarelli, of project architect SHoP Architects said, also noting that they are in the very nascent stages when thinking about this space.
Edens expects to file for the PUD in the next week. Additional renderings are below. For a full rundown of what is planned for Union Market, click here.
