New designs are emerging for JBG SMITH's massive development plans at Gallaudet University nearly four years after the project received zoning approval, and a year following dismissal of an appeal.
The development team shared designs for two of the project's four parcels with the community last night via a Zoom call, and is expected to file a second-stage planned unit development (PUD) application soon.
The completed PUD will span six acres of university-owned land straddling 6th Street between Morse Street and Neal Place NE (map), delivering 129,000 square feet of retail, 449,000-483,000 square feet of office and administrative space, and up to 1,769 residential units, 10% of which will be affordable.
The two parcels (2 and 3) included in the upcoming application will deliver mixed-use buildings on either side of 6th Street that provide a gateway to Union Market. Parcel 2, on the Gallaudet side of the street, will include three 5-7-story residential buildings designed by Olson Kundig, two of which are connected by a bridge.
The connected buildings will have retail along 6th Street and school amenities fronting the campus street Creativity Way. The third building sits to the north and has a Union Market-inspired design.
The Union Market surface parking lot is Parcel 3, which will host an 11-story, Morris Adjmi-designed building bisected by the newly-created Tapscott Street, which will connect to Union Market. This parcel will also replace the lost public parking below-grade, courtesy of the city's controversial use of tax-increment financing.
The PUD will incorporate DeafSpace design principles, including new streetscape such as a covered "arcade" retail spillover space where the Parcel 3 building faces 6th Street. Parallel to Morse Street, a "Green Finger" throughway will create a series of seating and gathering areas between Creativity Way to 6th Street. There will also be a Campus Walk that connects the project to Union Market, and DDOT is planning a protected cycletrack along 6th Street. Future Green Studio is the landscape architect.
