Latest rendering for 1401 Okie Street NE

The redevelopment plans on the boards for an Ivy City warehouse owned by Douglas Development will go before the Board of Zoning Adjustment in early March.

Douglas has plans to renovate and “adaptively reuse” the warehouse located at 1401 Okie Street NE (map) that used to house a tomato packaging company. That adaptive re-use includes plans to house a roastery, coffeeshop and bakery for Compass Coffee. The remaining square footage will be used for retail purposes.

“The existing building will be preserved structurally except for a 33’-6” wide open court that will be cut into the center of the building, resulting in the removal of density and the creation of an active pedestrian walkway,” documents filed with the Board of Zoning Adjustment stated. “The open court will be the main attraction for future retail tenants and patrons and will strategically cut up the large warehouse floor plate.”

The warehouse sits across the street from the Hecht Warehouse apartments, which started leasing late last year.

Project architect is Antunovich Associates.
