Plans are progressing for a two-phase residential development adjacent to the Rhode Island Avenue Metro station as raze applications for the sites were filed with DC this week.
Jair Lynch Real Estate Partners has plans in the works for a development that will bring 585 new residential units to an assemblage of seven lots along the 600 block of Rhode Island Avenue NE (map). Six of the lots are owned by affiliates of the Greater Mount Calvary Baptist Church and have been leased to Jair Lynch for the next 102 years. The seventh lot is owned by Jair Lynch.
The low-rise buildings at the addresses will be razed to make way for the two-part development. The initial phase will include 383 apartments, of which 53 are planned as affordable units for families and individuals earning up to 60% Area Median Income (AMI), and 76 are planned as moderate-income units serving families and individuals earning up to 80% AMI. The second phase will deliver 202 mixed-income apartments.
Jair Lynch did not immediately respond to UrbanTurf's request for comment, but the firm's website says that the project is expected to start construction next year.
