A rendering of the development presented at the meeting, overlaid with other documents presented to the ANC committee.
Back in October, UrbanTurf reported that Level 2 Development had a project on the boards for the Burger King site near Union Market that would include “6,000 square feet of retail and a couple hundred units.” We learned last night that the project has grown in scope, and we also got an idea of what the development will look like.
The developer gave an ANC 6C committee a first look at the 315-unit, multifamily project planned for 3rd Street and Florida Avenue NE (map).
The project will have 125 parking spaces and a rooftop pool, and may include penthouse units depending on how fast the Zoning Commission approves new regulations allowing such residences. Level 2 hopes to construct a park adjacent to the building as a public amenity.
Aesthetically, the project looks a lot like The Harper, a recently-delivered Level 2 Development project on 14th Street, and will similarly have small-sized units. Its facade is dominated by large, industrial-style windows set over a brick base. Eric Colbert is the architect.
This is Level 2’s first project in the Union Market area, though the company is also partnering with developer Edens on a large residential development adjacent to the market itself. The Burger King development will require a planned-unit development to move forward.
