First Phase of 670-Unit Anacostia River Development Gets Approval: Figure 1

The first phase of a massive 670-unit project planned near the Potomac Avenue Metro was unanimously approved by the Zoning Commission (ZC) on Monday night.

The project, from Cohen Companies, sits at 1333 M Street SE (map), a property bounded by M Street, Water Street and Virginia Avenue SE. An earlier hearing before the ZC indicated mostly support for the plan from ANC 6B and the Office of Planning.

The first phase of the planned four-stage project includes a relatively small 218-residential building that will rise 10 stories. But in the long term, Cohen Companies has much larger plans for the 2.9-acre site, including a total of about 670 units, 10,000 square feet of retail, 220 parking spaces, a public park and a wildflower garden.
