Gallaudet University and JBG SMITH have unveiled plans 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 week outlines plans for a 120-foot, 647-unit residential development at 1331 5th Street NE (map) behind Union Market. The new building, designed by Selldorf Architects, would sit right behind Union Market.
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).
The 650-unit development 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 Project incorporates a series of outdoor experiences for residents through the use of private and communal terraces and for visitors and retail patrons with the entry plaza on 5th Street," application documents stated. "The ground floor plan also includes private outdoor terrace spaces for use by retail tenants, further generating a pedestrian vibrancy throughout the public realm surrounding the Property."
