Northfield Development’s proposed mixed-use project between Barracks Row and Navy Yard received unanimous support for its Historical Preservation Review Board application from the ANC 6B Planning Committee earlier this week.

The 22-unit project, designed by Peter Fillat Architects, will be located at 801 Virginia Avenue SE (map), under a mile from the Navy Yard Metro.

The ground floor of the building will have 3,000 square feet of retail, which the developers are hoping to fill with a local restaurant, “perhaps one currently residing on Barracks Row,” Nathan Hamman, managing partner for Northfield Development, said in an emailed statement about the project.

There will be 16 one-bedroom units, three studios, and three two-bedrooms in the project. Hamman said the average unit size will be about 750 square feet. If things go according to schedule, the plan is to break ground next spring.

    Final design ?? 'Yawn'

    If constructed of high-quality materials with excellent details and craftsmanship, this could come off as a solid asset, especially given how forlorn the two blocks of 8th Street SE between the freeway and the Navy Yard are currently! But it's hard to see how this design could ever translate to exciting, much less fabulous.
