Level 2's 315-Unit Union Market Project Sets Delivery for Late 2018: Figure 1

Level 2 Development’s 315-unit project adjacent to Union Market has set a planned delivery date for late 2018.

The project, dubbed The Highline at Union Market — undoubtedly a nod to the urban-industrial aesthetic of the New York project bearing the same name — will be built on the site of a Burger King at 320 Florida Avenue NE (map). Developers filed a planned-unit development application for the project on Thursday morning. Eric Colbert is the architect on the project, which will include 8,400 square feet of retail and 143 parking spaces.

In a news release, Level 2 said the building would be constructed to LEED Silver standards and have 105 bike spaces. The company is hoping to break ground on the project in late 2016.

The development has increased in scope since it was first floated by Level 2 in fall 2014. In early January, Level 2 told an ANC 6C committee that the development would have small-sized units similar to those of The Harper, another Level 2 project located on 14th Street NW. The company is also partnering with Edens on another residential development in Union Market.

    Looks like another hideous building, hope it ends up nice.. but,,,are they stealing the eland, like Vision McMillan Partners, for hideous , mediocrity? Visionless McMillan Partner’s “Monstrosity on Michigan Avenue”, needs to be canned, but Bowser and the City Council are controlled by the Growth Machine, big money. The corrupt deal to transfer $billions in public money and land is THEFT. Hopefully, when we provide healthy, engaging, integrity building, educational activity and career training at our restored McMillan Park and Community Eco-campus, DC youth will grow up responsible and stop mugging, killing each other, and taking drugs. This is my hope. Stop the City government from handing over a $billion public park site, to Visionless McMillan Partners and start building a healthy community, it is simple. Grocery and anyother community service can be developed on the grid, whereit belongs. Whole Foods in Tenley adaptively re-used a derelict parking garage, no corrupt “surplus and land disosal”, deal was made with mediocre developer EYA and Jair Lynch. Just like inn Maryland, Glen Echo provides 365 days a year of activity, arts/education to Potomac ,,,why not us? Why not a Wolf Trap DC outdoor concert space..thank your council-member McDuffie and Bowser, Gray, Grosso, Mendelson, Catania, Wells, Cheh, Bonds, who moved 25 acres of YOUR recreation green space to Trammel Crow, a theft from the public to the corporations, next time your mugged! Do you know how many $billions VMP is making on the DC public, and at the expense of our youth? We want a world class capitol, with long term cultural and community planning, not corruption, and racism,,stop VMP,,make the city a proud place,,,dump Bowser ASAP.
