A rendering of Market Terminal
The development team behind the massive Union Market Terminal development at Third and Morse Streets NE (map) has amended the planned-unit development (PUD) application to address items that the Office of Planning cited in previous reviews.

In the latest iteration of the six-building development, the floorplans have been revised and the site where buildings C1 and C2 will connect have been clarified. Also, the penthouse levels of Buildings A1 and B have been redesigned and more detailed renderings have been provided to highlight the materiality of the buildings and the aforementioned changes.

Building A1, which will have a five-story portion and an 11-story portion, will deliver 453 residential units atop 16,495 square feet of ground-floor retail. The roof will feature a raised pool deck and three penthouse sections topping the 11th story; one of those will be a two-story penthouse that will have habitable space on the first floor, while the other two penthouses will contain mechanical equipment.

The five-story side will feature a single penthouse level with both habitable and mechanical space. Building A1 will also feature a mural reading “Market Terminal” (inspired by the “Brookland” sign) created from a pattern of perforated bricks.

Building B, which will be a five-story residential building containing 105 units atop 9,000 square feet of ground-floor retail, will also have a single-story mechanical penthouse. Although the buildings will have units as large as three bedrooms, most will be either studios (with 147 and 35 units respectively in buildings A1 and B) or one-bedrooms (172 and 35 units respectively).

In addition to buildings A1 and B, the first phase of the development will deliver a 10-story office building containing 217,558 square feet of office space atop 10,563 square feet of ground-floor retail and will create activated public spaces with Florida Avenue Park and Morse Plaza. Morse Street, 3rd Street and Neal Place will also be extended through the site.

The second phase of the development, which will eventually be submitted as a separate PUD, will include the following:
- Building A2: An 11-story building that will either contain 198 residential units or 150 hotel rooms atop 4,570 square feet of street-level retail. When the first phase delivers, this parcel will house pop-up retail and/or a maker-space incubator.
- Building C2: An 11-story residential building containing 232 units atop 9,200 square feet of street-level retail.
- Building D: A 10-story building with either office space, 115 residential units or 120 hotel rooms atop 3,140 square feet of street-level retail. The parcels for both this building and Building C will be temporary park space when the first phase delivers.
The development is also designed to include up to 56 affordable housing units for households earning up to 50 percent area median income (AMI) and an additional 56 units for households earning up to 80 percent AMI. There will also be a total of 682 parking spaces across several underground parking levels.
Kettler is developing the site, which abuts the newly-designated Florida Avenue Market historic district, while R2L:Architects and Oculus designed the buildings and landscaping.
