Two weeks after we got an early look at the mixed-use development proposed across the street from Nats Park, the design review process is starting.
The 37,453 square-foot development site includes a total of eight rowhouses on both South Capitol and N Streets. Two of the three rowhouses on South Capitol will be restored for either commercial or residential use, and an additional three townhouse units will be constructed on South Capitol that will offer the option for live/work space.
Four of the five rowhouses on N Street will be restored to deliver three units which will likely be affordable. These units will also have interior access to the larger building.
The unit mix will span studios to three-bedrooms, and in addition to the townhouse lawns, some ground-floor units will have walk-out patios and penthouse units will have private terraces.
The application also addresses aspects of the building that are designed with the world's current health crisis in mind.
"The Project’s focus on outdoor areas is intentional and directly responds to the larger stay-at-home dynamic introduced by the current pandemic and related resident wellness benefits," the application explains. "Balconies have been incorporated liberally throughout the Building facades, to allow for outdoor respite for residents while also providing for architectural features to further refine and articulate the Building form."
It is undecided at this point whether the development will be for-sale or for-rental, but there will be 24 inclusionary zoning units that would be for households earning up to 80% of median family income if it is a condo building, or 60% if it is a rental apartment building.
The development would include 180 below-grade vehicular parking spaces and up to 107 cycle spaces, and amenities will include an outdoor pet area fronting South Capitol and a rooftop terrace with pool.
The development team is expected to seek ANC 6D support in September or October; a zoning hearing has not yet been scheduled.
