A rendering of Lewis Flats
Late last week, UrbanTurf reported on five of the six development proposals for Parcel 42, the DC-owned lot in the Shaw neighborhood. Today, we will share the details of the sixth plan submitted for the site at 7th and R Streets NW (map).
A development partnership between Donohoe Development, Spectrum Management and Borger Management, with Torti Gallas as the architect, seeks to create Lewis Flats, a mixed-use building featuring 7,000 square feet of neighborhood-serving retail and 121 residential units. The parking plan for the proposal includes 90 bike parking spaces, 44 car parking spaces, and four motorcycle parking spots.
The apartments will range in size from studios to three bedrooms, with 30.5 percent of the units being designated as affordable. Unusual among most mixed-income buildings is that the affordable units will skew larger than those at market-rate, and all units will enjoy the same level of finishes.
The proposal will aim for LEED Silver certification at minimum, and include a pocket park with seating, a neighborhood playground and public WiFi.
The other five proposals for the parcel incorporate such creative and trendy ideas as art installations, a Spike Mendelson restaurant, and micro-units. Each of the proposals designates at least 30 percent of the housing as affordable.
