The H Street Corridor joins 14th Street NW and NoMa as one of the liveliest sections of DC when it comes to new residential construction (either underway or in the works). In light of recent news that Jair Lynch will build 240 apartments on three plots near 6th and H Street NE, UrbanTurf decided to outline the residential projects on tap for the corridor, starting on the western edge of the neighborhood and moving east.

360˚ H Street

360˚ H Street is a 215-unit rental project from Steuart Investment Co. that will be anchored by a Giant supermarket at 3rd and H Street NE (map). The 286,500 square-foot project was designed by Torti Gallas and will consist of a six-story, LEED certified building with a 42,000 square-foot Giant supermarket on the ground floor. Plans are for two floors of underground parking. The project is scheduled to deliver by 2013.

300 L Street NE

Valor Development and Ellisdale Construction are collaborating on a six-story, 49-unit condo project at 300 L Street NE. In addition to the residences, there will be a 5,000 square-foot retail component on the ground floor, and the developers would like at least a section of that space to be occupied by a restaurant. Designed by PGN Architects, the building will be comprised of mostly one and two-bedroom condos and eight studios. Three units will be reserved for those making 80 percent of the area median income. The project is scheduled to deliver in the spring of 2013

318 I Street NE

AvalonBay is building a 140-unit apartment building just north of H Street at 318 I Street NE (map). Other than its size and location, few details were provided about the development’s plans and timeline.

The Jair Lynch Apartments

Jair Lynch, a DC developer who has spent the majority of his career focusing on U Street residential development, will build 240 new apartments along the south side of H Street, between 6th and 7th NE (map). Currently, two five-story brick buildings sandwich a one-story former grocery store along this stretch.

H Street Connection

Developer Rappaport Companies plans to build an 8-story, mixed-use project on the current site of H Street Connection, a strip mall on the south side of H street between 8th and 10th streets NE (map). The development plan calls for 346 to 423 apartments and over 50,000 square feet of retail. UrbanTurf spoke with a Rappaport Companies spokesperson recently, who said that the project is still in the planning stages.

The Flats at Atlas District

The Flats at Atlas District is a 257-unit apartment project currently under construction at the eastern edge of the H Street Corridor on Bladensburg Road between Neale and K Streets NE (map). The units are slated for delivery in the spring of 2012. The Flats at Atlas District will feature studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom apartments, and the project will have amenities including a fitness center, pool, indoor basketball court, an outdoor lounge with fireplace, and a courtyard. There will also be a 5,000 square-foot retail space on the ground floor, where builder Clark Realty Capital hopes to have a convenience store or cafe for residents.

    Nice to see what new residences are on the way for the area!
  1. Campy said at 1:49 pm on Wednesday October 19, 2011:
    Thanks, it's exciting to view all these projects in one spot. You should also add Union Place phase II (next to Loree Grand): "Union Place, Phase 2 will feature a 14-story residential building containing 500 units and retail space. The total value of the entire project at completion will exceed $350 million." http://www.unionplacedc.com/
  1. Jordan said at 1:50 pm on Wednesday October 19, 2011:
    By my count, these projects will add 1,373 new residential housing units. Even assuming that only one person will live in each unit, that is a huge influx of new residents over the next couple years.

    What about the Dreyfus project across from Senate Square in the 200 block of H Street?
  1. Ian said at 5:01 pm on Wednesday October 19, 2011:
    318 I St - There are a lot of construction trailers on the two corners of 4th and I St (South side and West side). They may be for the Giant development on H or for 318 I St.

    found this about the Dreyfus project: http://www.dcrealestate.com/condos.php?prop=248
  1. Ralph said at 9:12 pm on Wednesday October 19, 2011:
    Will be interesting to see how much these units/apartments are going to be priced considering there's no Metro (rail).
  1. H Street Landlord said at 10:14 pm on Wednesday October 19, 2011:
    Ralph, check the map again. The first three buildings in this post are extremely close to two different metros (Union Station, NY Ave), the fourth project is about 6-7 blocks from a metro, the fifth is 9 or so blocks and the final two are, yes, fairly far.
  1. Ralph said at 4:54 pm on Thursday October 20, 2011:
    I see now. Probably a good 3-4 blocks I'm guessing. Not bad.
  1. Mike said at 9:15 pm on Friday October 21, 2011:
    Spoke with one of the guys setting up in the vacant lot across from 318 I st yesterday. He said the goal was to be finished with the project by april 2012. I wished him luck. He also said to expect pile driving in the next couple weeks.
  1. C said at 3:37 pm on Tuesday October 25, 2011:
    I can't wait for the H Street connection project. I have a bus that goes directly from my house to 8th and H, but I never go up there because I hate waiting at that bus stop. It'll be better if there are lots of people living right there.
  1. East_H said at 3:59 pm on Tuesday October 25, 2011:
    The Flats at Atlas building is extremely impressive. If you haven't been over to Bladensburg Rd in a while, you will be shocked.
  1. 8 and H said at 6:10 pm on Tuesday April 17, 2012:
    Atlas Flats is 1675 starting for a 1 bedroom; who is paying that, no metro, still in the MIDDLE of the hood. evntually H st development will bury itself--too much, too fast and most importantly too expensive given the number of available units and the potential dwellers..there aren't enough people to occupy the new apartments
