It has been a long time coming for NoMa’s Storey Park development, a project slated for 1005 First Street NE (map) that was originally approved to have 346,000 square feet of office space, 65,000 square feet of retail and 300 residential units.

While the development was initially approved in 2013 with an expected delivery date of last year, a slow office market and a change in the development team, with Four Points buying First Potomac out of its joint venture with Perseus Realty, contributed to repeated delays on the project.

Now, the developers are scrapping the office portion of the development in favor of a 225-room hotel and increasing the total number of apartments to 451.

The east wing of the 130-foot tall building would contain the hotel and 145 apartments (48 studios, 18 junior one-bedrooms, 31 one-bedrooms and 48 two-bedrooms); the west wing of the building would contain 306 apartments (78 studios, 165 one-bedrooms and 63 two-bedrooms).

The rooftop will house both hotel and residential space and amenities, as well as a shared pool. A three-level underground parking garage will deliver 185 shared hotel and residential parking spaces and 91 retail parking spaces, in addition to 122 long-term bicycle spaces.

There will be 23,026 square feet of retail, the bulk of which will be on the ground-floor; roughly 2,000 square feet of the retail space will share the loading level of the parking garage. HKS Architects is still the designer of the project, which was intended to also deliver a public courtyard with a sculpture garden.

Assuming that the development team is granted its requested zoning relief for loading ramp, courtyard dimension and parking garage entrance requirements, ground could break as early as this year for delivery in July 2019. The site is currently a paved public plaza, hosting regular events like outdoor movies.
