JBG is back at it again in NoMa.
The Chevy Chase-based firm is proposing a mixed-use property with residential units, office and retail space and a seven-screen movie theater at a site bounded by N Street NE, 1st Street NE, M Street NE and North Capitol Street (map).
The residential portion would have 220 units. There would be just over 366,000 square feet of office space and approximately 30,500 square feet of retail. A movie theater with approximately 1,200 seats would be located on site. Four levels of below-ground parking with a total of 216 spaces will be constructed. The site currently consists of a surface parking lot and two office buildings that will be razed for the new project.
It may not seem like it, but the rendering above shows aspects of the same building. Here are how the different designs are described in documents filed with Board of Zoning Adjustment on Thursday:
The most northeastern portion of the building with frontage on N Street and First Street is an 11-story tower with a traditional office layout and ground floor retail. The façade is predominantly glass and includes a two-story terra cotta mullion frame system atop a ground level storefront. To the west of the office tower is a 12-story residential tower with frontage on N Street and evokes the era of glazed terra cotta as seen in prominent Washington DC buildings.
To the south of the residential component is a nine story tower dedicated to loft-style office use above ground floor retail. The architectural design of this portion of the building is in keeping with an industrial warehouse with exposed structure throughout. A rhythm of brick piers break down the façade, and the tower features large scale windows with gridded muntins and articulated brick spandrel panels. At the base between the brick piers is a point supported by the glass storefront system, which acts as a modern intervention to the industrial character.
The new proposed development is just the latest project for JBG in this section of DC. The firm is also partnering with Boundary Companies on a 691-unit mixed-use development near the intersection of New York and Florida avenues NE.
