Douglas Development would like to make its proposed Buzzard Point project even bigger.
Recently filed zoning documents show that the developer would like to add more residential units and parking spaces to its proposed development at 1900 Half Street SW (map), while also making changes to the building's design and massing. Specifically, Douglas would like to increase the number of residential units from 419 to 453, and increase the number of parking spaces from 246 to 280.
"In addition, the Applicant proposes to increase the total number of non-required affordable housing units in the building from 10 units to 11 units to maintain the approximate proportionality of market rate to affordable units, even though, as recognized by the Commission, the project has no IZ requirement," the application filed this week stated.
The proposed development, designed by Antunovich Associates, would include revamping a vacant former General Services Administration building that Douglas purchased in 2005.
Correction: An earlier version of this article misspelled the architect of the development.
