A new residential development is on the boards for a site near DC’s Chinatown.

Monument Realty is proposing an 11-story, 133-unit residential project that will sit about half a block north of the Verizon Center (map) on a plot bounded by I Street NW to the north, 6th Street to the east, H Street to the south, and 7th Street to the west. Monument worked with Hickok Cole Architects on the building design.

The development will consist of residential units in the existing townhouses and a building with studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom units above those properties. The second level of the proposed development will have a gym and amenity space for residents and an “Asian Living Arts Center” will be constructed on-site to host cultural and educational programming. Three levels of below-grade parking will provide 100 parking spaces for the new project, and there will be a bicycle room for 64 bikes.

There are thirteen buildings on the site of the proposed project, and eight of those properties are contributing structures to the Downtown Historic District. Seven of the eight buildings will be incorporated into the new development.

Monument also has its eye on a warehouse in Shaw adjacent to the Wonder Bread factory where it plans to build a new 110-unit development.
