A long-dormant plan to build new residences on the site of the View at Waterfront buildings at 6th and M Streets SW (map) has been revitalized by the developer, Mill City Residential, with new renderings and plans recently submitted to the Zoning Commission.
Mill City wants to build 260 new units in two buildings, one north and one south of the existing I.M. Pei-designed residential towers. The developer will also build in 290 parking spaces. The new buildings will rise to 85 feet in height.
The revised plans, first reported by The Little Quadrant that Could, will likely move forward before the Zoning Commission. In a filing last week, the Office of Planning recommended that the plans be considered by the commission.
The project, designed by SK&I Architecture, is about a block from the Waterfront Metro and just east of the massive Wharf redevelopment. The revised project is smaller in scale than one originally approved by the Zoning Commission.
