Rendering of the Shapiro Residences
Edens’ massive residential project at Union Market received preliminary approval from the Zoning Commission on Monday night.
The plans for 1270 4th St. NE (map), now called the Shapiro Residences, include 415-510 units in the planned South building and 130-170 units in the North building, to be added later. It will also include 40,000 square feet of retail and 400-550 parking spots. The design by Shalom Baranes Associates went through several changes before moving forward with the Commission.
Prior to giving the development final approval, commissioners asked the developers to not just build the project to LEED standards, as proposed, but to actually follow through and get the building formally certified by LEED. They also asked the applicant to be more specific about the affordable housing being offered as part of the development.
The development’s success at the Zoning Commission comes on the heels of another big approval for Edens: Its proposal to build on top of the Union Market building, about a block away from the Shapiro Residences, was approved in late March.
