As site work slowly persists at one of DC's most controversial major development sites, new Historic Preservation Review Board (HPRB) filings give hints of the phases to come.
Jair Lynch Development Partners has submitted new design concepts for HPRB approval for Parcels 2 and 4 at the McMillan Sand Filtration site at Michigan Avenue and North Capitol Streets NW (map).
A planned unit development (PUD) was approved for the 25-acre site in 2014 with a vision of nearly 700 townhouses and apartments, medical office buildings, retail, a grocery store, and eight acres of open space. Appeal suits precluded any construction on the project from 2016 until a ruling last fall.
One of the two concepts is for Parcel 2, which will house a 233-unit multifamily building with ground-floor retail. The previously-approved design included a multi-story bridge between the two volumes of the building that had apartments on one end; in the latest submittal, the bridge has been simplified to stacked, glazed walkways. The new bridge, which will span Three Quarter Street, was also part of previously-approved PUD filings.
The façade of the building is meant to evoke draping similar to that of the grassy knolls on the current site. Twenty-seven of the apartments will be affordable, and the two portions of the building will each have roughly 8,000 square feet of ground-floor retail.
The other concept is for Parcel 4, which will house a multifamily building with a ground-floor grocery tenant. Harris Teeter is no longer expected to occupy the space. Of the apartments, 196 will be market-rate and 85 will be affordable units for seniors aged 55 and older. The façade of the building will be louvered in reference to the former filtration function of the site, with gridding that references the below-grade groin vaults.
Both buildings are designed by MV+A Architects with additional design of the Parcel 4 building by David Jameson Architects, and both will also have below-grade parking; additional renderings are below.
CORRECTION: The article has been updated to more accurately reflect the design team.
