The building entrance was moved as part of the PUD update.
Level 2 Development has updated its plans for The Highline at Union Market, a 315-unit project planned for the site of a Burger King near Union Market.
The developers filed an update to their planned-unit development application in advance of a June 4 hearing before the Zoning Commission. The update includes new renderings for the development, as well as other changes. Eric Colbert is the architect on the project at 320 Florida Avenue NE (map), which will have about 10,000 square feet of retail and 143 parking spaces. The project has a planned delivery date of late 2018.
The roof, including proposed penthouses and a pool.
In addition to architectural changes in its update, the developers increased the affordability of some of the units. Level 2 had previously proposed setting aside the required 8 percent of units to households earning 80 percent of the area median income (AMI). Now, in addition to the 13 affordable units on-site available to those earning up to 80 percent AMI, Level 2 will provide a $1.4 million contribution to Habitat for Humanity for an additional thirteen units elsewhere in Ward 5. Those 13 will be provided to households making up to 50 percent AMI.
The proposed park.
The developers also further detailed their plans for the creation and maintenance of an on-site park on public land adjacent to the building. Level 2 also wants to include residential penthouses on-site, a provision that awaits the Zoning Commission’s approval of new rules for live-in penthouses. The Commission has been working to pass those rules, which would allow developers to build residential in addition to mechanical penthouses, for more than a year.
