The development pipeline along Martin Luther King, Jr. Avenue continues to grow.
Masjid Muhammad is applying for a map amendment for the 2300 block of Martin Luther King, Jr. Avenue SE between Chicago and Talbert Streets (map). The organization owns roughly 22,750 square feet of the 46,859 square-foot block, where the Clara Muhammad School was previously located.
The application is seeking to upzone the block to support mixed-use development with a maximum height of 65 feet without inclusionary zoning. If approved, the developer is interested in building an all-affordable mixed-use project with 85 units above 13,000 square feet of retail. The apartments would be affordable to households earning between 30 and 80 percent of area median income.
