After sharing its plans with the public last month, a Property Group Partners (PGP)-led development team has filed a second-stage planned unit development (PUD) application for the next phase of Capitol Crossing.
The proposal would deliver 166 apartments, 221 hotel rooms and 20,567 square feet of retail to the center block above the Center Leg Freeway, off F Street between 2nd and 3rd Street NW (map). The residential and hotel uses would each be in 12 stories atop a shared two-story retail-and-amenity podium, which qualifies the project as one building under zoning.
The center block was originally approved for residential and office uses, although up to 267,000 square feet of lodging and/or educational uses were added two years ago. The hotel will have a penthouse bar/restaurant with wrap-around terrace, and the residences will have a rooftop pool deck. The new phase will share the 1,146 vehicular and 440 bicycle spaces that have already been constructed for the entire development below-grade.
Fifty of the apartments would be affordable (for 40 years) to households earning up to 80% of area median income, and almost half of the residential units will have a traditional or juliet balcony. A little over half of the units will be one-bedrooms and the remainder will be studios and two-bedrooms.
The façade of the residential building will include pre-cast concrete with wood and painted aluminum accents, and the façade of the hotel building will bronze with textured glass accents. The podium is also white pre-cast concrete with bronze accents, and the storefronts are in glass and aluminum; a terrace above the podium may be either green roof space or outdoor amenity space. Ennead Architects is the designer.
Construction is expected to start within the three years after the approving zoning order is released, starting with the podium and the residential portion; work would begin on the hotel portion within three years of a Certificate of Occupancy for the podium or the residential. The North block of Capitol Crossing has already delivered and the South block has zoning approvals and is moving toward the building permit stage.
A zoning hearing has not yet been scheduled.
