A year ago, plans emerged for one of the final parcels at the Waterfront Station redevelopment. Now, as the development team prepares to go before the Zoning Commission, we're taking another look at the somewhat-tweaked design of the project.
PN Hoffman is helming the mixed-use development on the city-owned parcel at 1000 4th Street SW (map). Upon completion, an 11-story building will deliver 456 apartments above 11,400 square feet of neighborhood-serving commercial space, a 9,000 square-foot black box theater and an AppleTree Early Learning pre-Kindergarten. Of the apartments, approximately 136 will be affordable for the life of the 99-year ground lease: half for households earning up to 30 percent of median family income (MFI), and half for households earning up to 50 percent MFI.
There will be 233 parking spaces across two below-grade levels. At least 1,200 square feet of ground-floor space will be a diner, potentially from the owners of Tryst, for at least the first two years of the project.
Since last year, the design has been tweaked in a few ways. The façade on Wesley Place, previously envisioned as all-glass on the 4th-10th floors, will now feature a ceramic rainscreen and metal panels. The courtyard has also been reconfigured to offer more light and air to the courtyard itself and courtyard-facing units, so there are fewer balconies on this side of the building.
The development team also includes CityPartners, AHC Inc., and Paramount Development; the architect is Torti Gallas Urban.
A Zoning Commission hearing is scheduled for January 31st. If all goes as-scheduled, construction could begin in the first quarter of 2020, putting anticipated delivery in the third quarter of 2022. Additional renderings are below.
