Roughly 200 Units and Retail Planned For Union Market Burger King Site: Figure 1

The development on the boards for the area around Union Market just doesn’t seem to slow down.

Level 2 Development is planning to submit a planned-unit development (PUD) to the Zoning Commission for a mixed-use, multifamily project on the site of a Burger King at 3rd Street and Florida Avenue NE (map). The project will likely have about 6,000 square feet of retail and a couple hundred units, UrbanTurf has learned. Level 2 wouldn’t confirm the number of units or the retail square footage, but did say Eric Colbert and Associates is the architect on the project.

At the ANC 6C Planning and Zoning meeting on Wednesday night, Level 2 sketched out a broad plan for the project without going into any specifics, Commissioner Mark Eckenwiler told UrbanTurf. The company plans to file a PUD by the end of the year and will start making presentations about the project next month once plans for the site are finalized.

The project is situated near Union Market, where Level 2 is currently pursuing another PUD in partnership with Edens Realty and Shalom Baranes Architects. It’s safe to say that the new development, still in the preliminary planning stages, will be smaller in scope. Edens is also planning to build a project adjacent to the Burger King site between Morse Street, Fourth Street and Florida Avenue NE (map).

ANC 6C Commissioner Tony Goodman suggested the level of development going on in the area, and the lack of nearby residents, meant the ANC would be likely be supportive of the project.

“The biggest concern is that the community went through a really long and comprehensive effort on the small area plan and just want to make sure that the new PUD, going forward, helps to advance the goals in the plan,” Goodman said.
