The plans for the second phase of DC's Bridge District are coming into focus.
Nearly 18 months after UrbanTurf reported on the first phase of the massive new development near the 11th Street Bridge park, the team led by Redbrick-LMD has filed a design review application for the second phase that will deliver upwards of 1,000 units near Poplar Point.
The two-building project will include approximately 825 residential units, 151 lodging units and about 24,400 square feet of retail. Designed by ODA and BBGM Architects and Interiors, the new buildings will be located along Howard Road SE between South Capitol Street and I-295, about a quarter mile from the Anacostia Metro station (map).
The residences at the new development will range from studios to three-bedrooms. Approximately 12% of the units will be set aside as Inclusionary Zoning (IZ) for households earning no more than 50% and 60% MFI. Half of the IZ units will be three-bedrooms.
With the exception of the lobbies, the ground floor along Howard Road will be devoted to retail use that will include three recessed plazas aimed to provide social spaces for retail, outdoor dining, and gathering. A specific emphasis of the building design focuses on outdoor space.
"Outdoor space to the well being of residents became vitally apparent during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, and thus over half of the dwelling units within the project contain balconies," documents filed with DC stated. "The project [also] promotes outdoor living with a shared second floor amenity terrace, outdoor penthouse amenities, and easy connections to the surrounding parks, bike paths, and nearby neighborhoods."
The first phase of the Bridge District began earlier this year as the 750-unit development dubbed The Douglass broke ground. The expected delivery for this phase is in 2025.
