Plans for one of the last remaining parcels at The Parks at Walter Reed could move forward this year. 

In February, UrbanTurf reported on Hines and Urban Atlantic's plans for a new 37 townhouse development at Parcel Z on the southwestern edge of The Parks (map). After few back and forth revisions with DC's Historic Preservation Office, it appears that a recommendation is about to give the project the green light. 

Last week, an HPO report on the new development recommended the Review Board (HPRB) approve the concept at their meeting later this month. 

The proposed project will include the construction of 3- and 4-story townhomes. The townhomes, three of which will be set aside as affordable, will spread out over approximately 3,000 square feet and each have individual garages. 

"The Commission reviewed an initial concept in February and made several recommendations for revisions, including broadening the central “mews” and flipping the upper stories of the rows facing Main Drive and Aspen Street, so that the roof decks would be at the rear of the houses," the HPO report said. 

As a multi-phase project, The Parks at Walter Reed will be completed in the coming years, as Hines, Urban Atlantic, Triden and architect Torti Gallas Urban oversee more than 3 million square feet of development.
