The redevelopment of the Fox 5 headquarters in Friendship Heights is moving forward.
The development team has filed plans with DC's Board of Zoning Adjustment (BZA), and those plans include a new image providing the clearest picture yet of the new project.
Valor Development will deliver a 50 foot-tall building (plus penthouse) containing 177 residential units at 5151 Wisconsin Avenue NW (map). The expectation is that the project will break ground after the broadcast company relocates to the other side of Western Avenue next year.
The proposal is seeking a special exception from the BZA to extend the existing MU-4 zoning to square the building off past the diagonal lot line. The project will have 60 bicycle spaces and 80-100 parking spaces below grade in the existing basement (more than the 30 required), and 10% of the residential space would be inclusionary zoning (IZ). Hickok Cole is the architect.
