This has been a pretty big week for Union Market.

Just a few days after it was revealed that an eight-screen movie theater would be opening near the market, ANC 6C approved a large residential project with approximately 25,000 square feet of ground floor retail for the corner of 4th Street and Florida Avenue NE.

Chances are that if you have been to Union Market, you know where this project will be built — the vacant plot at 340 Florida Avenue NE was the site of a sign that read “Pretty soon you won’t recognize the place. Promise.”

Week by week, that sign is proving to be prophetic. The zoning application for Gateway Market Center states that the project will include 170-216 residential units with a significant affordable housing component and approximately 27,500 square feet of retail space. Developer EDENS and Sang Oh Choi are seeking restaurants for the retail space, as well as a specialty grocer. Construction is slated to start early next year.

    Will the movie theater be included in this development?

    Dave/John, Unclear from the Post article if this development will house the Angelika movie theater, but based on the rendering and the amount of retail space, we think it will be in another EDENS project planned in the area. The Editors

    Isn't this part of Ward 5 - so ANC 5D would be the one approving this right?

    What is the deal with all these apartments. This area here should/would be prime for some awesome LOFT style condos. Geeze I was hoping this development was something different than the rest of DC.

    I believe the Angelika will be part of a building on the uphill side of the Union Market building. I think the plan is to demo the existing building that currently houses artist studios and put up a taller structure with the theaters at the base.

    Praying that the specialty grocer is a Trader Joe's...
