1331 5th Street NE
Gallaudet University and JBG SMITH have plans in the works for what might be the largest new residential development to date in the Union Market area.
A second-stage planned unit development (PUD) filed with the DC Zoning Commission last year outlines plans for a 120-foot, 647-unit residential development at 1331 5th Street NE (map) behind Union Market. The 650-unit development, designed by Selldorf Architects, will have 33,500 square feet of retail space and approximately 345 parking spaces. About 10% of the residential units will be set aside for renters earning no more than 50% or 80% of median family income.
The plan for Parcel 4 is part of Gallaudet and JBG SMITH's larger vision to deliver over 450,000 square feet of office and administrative space, 129,000 square feet of retail, and up to 1,769 residential units on either side of 6th Street between Morse Street and Neal Place NE (map).
Move-ins continue at the Quincy Lane development, led by JBG SMITH and LCOR. At 1625 Eckington (map), 179 condos have delivered with prices starting in the $300s. At City Homes (map), there are 45 stacked duplexes, developed by Grosvenor Americas. The units are a mix of one-, two-, and three-bedrooms and each has private outdoor space; Cecconi Simone did the interior design and KTGY Architecture is the building architect. McWilliams|Ballard is administering sales and prices start from the low $700s.
An affordable development on the boards near Union Market has a design that is reminiscent of one of New York's most iconic buildings. The 12-story, 115-unit affordable development at 301 Florida Avenue NE (map) from a development team that includes The NRP Group and Marshall Heights Community Development Organization, was designed by PGN Architects in the style of New York's Flatiron building.
The units in the mixed-use rental building will be affordable to income levels at 30% and 50% area median income (AMI). The new building will have 3,000 square feet of ground-floor retail, and amenities on the second floor including a toddler room, a library/computer lab and a gym.
A "pearl-in-shell"-style building is on the boards for 340 Morse Street NE (map) that will deliver 260 residential units above 6,587 square feet of retail, the latter framing the 11,575 square-foot Neal Place Park. At least 20 of the units would be for households earning up to 80% of median family income (MFI). The building will also provide 165 below-grade parking spaces and 135 bicycle spaces.
Penn and 4th
EDENS has not one, but two new residential buildings on the boards for the Union Market area. Penn and 4th is a two-building residential development that will take the place of the Motel 6 building and Maurice Electric parking lot just off of New York Avenue (map). The buildings -- named 4th and Penn -- are designed by HKS Architects and Michael Marshal Design, respectively. There will be a total of 375 apartments, as well as 190 below-grade parking spaces and approximately 30,000 square feet of retail. Approximately 13% of the units will be affordable.
One of the more interesting aspects is the activated alley space that bisects the new development. Designed by David Rubin Land Collective, this paseo running from 4th to 5th Street NE will provide a neighborhood retail experience within the development. Retail will also flank 4th, 5th and Penn Streets.
The UDR and EDENS development at the Maurice Electric warehouse site at 500 Penn Street NE (map) incorporates the two-story façade of the Maurice Electric showroom into a 12-story building, delivering 299 apartments above 22,714 square feet of commercial space. The unit mix at The MO spans from studios to three-bedrooms, and 12% of the residential space is for households earning up to 60% and 50% of MFI. Eric Colbert and Associates is the architect.
An 11-story sister building to Union Market with 301 apartments above 23,000 square feet of commercial space at 1329 5th Street NE (map) received zoning approval in January 2020. Seventeen of the units will be for households earning up to 60% of MFI, and another seven will be for households earning up to 50% of MFI. The unit mix will span from studios to two-bedrooms with dens and the building would also include 3.5 levels of underground parking with 310 spaces for both buildings.
At least half of the commercial space will be built to accommodate PDR and makerspace, and the development would also include a new plaza between the new construction and the Union Market building. EDENS and Clarion Gables Multifamily Trust are the developers; hord | coplan | macht is the architect.
