A rendering of the project with the relocated sign.
Developer Edens’ plan to top the Union Market building with a theater and likely office space received final approval from the Zoning Commission on Monday night.
The project at 1309-1329 5th Street NE (map) includes plans for the Angelika Film Center atop the current market building and four stories of office space or residences above that. Edens plans a park in front of the market and a plaza behind. The planned-unit development from Edens includes a proposed North building behind the market building in a second phase.
The Zoning Commission voted to approve the project unanimously after Edens agreed to maintain the park and plaza for the life of the project and move the Union Market sign from a proposed location on top of the building to 5th Street.

The parking lot in front of the market is currently leased to the developer from Gallaudet University. Some renderings of the project include open space where the parking lot currently is; others show the outline of 110-foot buildings there.
