One of the massive mixed-use projects that developer Edens has on the boards for Union Market has changed its look a bit.

At the request of the Zoning Commission, Edens has revised the design of the project planned at 1270 4th St. NE (map) to make it “reflect the industrial character of the neighborhood,” according to recently filed zoning documents. The key change from when the planned unit development (PUD) was filed last year is a design that shows the residential units set back from the “retained wall of the warehouse building.” The development will have about 40,000 square feet of retail and 420 to 520 residential units across 370,000 square feet when everything is complete.

The revised design of the project also includes an extension of Neal Place. From the zoning documents:

“The extension will be provided through a public access easement over a portion of the project’s parking garage. Upon such time that the 3rd Street NE and further extension of Neal Place to 3rd Street are completed, opened and dedicated by the District, the Applicant with authorize the use of the extension for vehicular traffic. Until that time, the applicant proposes to landscape and treat the extension as a pocket park.”

Edens, who is working with Level 2 Development and architects Shalom Baranes Associates on the project, will go back before Zoning Commission in late March.

    You're kidding me? The first bland project wasn't bland enough? The Zoning Commission is incredible.

    Oh my god. The first design at least had some intriguing nooks and notches. The new one is horrible. Did the client insist that everything interesting be removed???
