Last week, we ran a development rundown for residential projects that were on the boards east of the Anacostia River. A reader contacted us to let us know about two more developments, both of which we outline below.
A short walk (and newly-constructed pedestrian bridge) away from the Minnesota Avenue Metro station, the Parkside development takes its name from the pre-existing Mayfair-Parkside neighborhood. Current development is blossoming around several blocks of rowhouses on Roosevelt Place which were completed in the 1990s, with the 2012 completion of the Victory Square age-restricted apartment building leading the way.
Between the Metrotowns at Parkside, Parkside Townhomes and the Grove at Parkside, over 400 mixed-income for-sale and rental units have been delivered over the past few years. A development team comprised of CityInterests LLC, Banc of America Community Development Corporation and Marshall Heights Community Development Organization is leading the project.
A multi-phase development is still in progress at various sites between Foote and Hayes Streets and Anacostia and Kenilworth Avenues NE (map) that will include at least 650 additional housing units, over 750,000 square feet of office and retail space, and several plazas and parks which will connect to the Anacostia River Trail.
Between the site at the intersection of Foote Street and Kenilworth Avenue and a second site at Kenilworth Terrace and Roosevelt Place, a total of roughly 350 mixed-income rental and for-sale units will be delivered. The latter site will involve two six-story buildings with ground-floor retail and restaurants along a pedestrian promenade. At Kenilworth Terrace and Hayes Street NE, an additional 160 mixed-income apartments are planned.
Kenilworth Courts is a four-phase development a few blocks from the Deanwood Metro station, nestled between Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens and Kenilworth Avenue NE (map). The District of Columbia Housing Authority awarded development rights to the Michaels Development Company, which is leading the area resurgence along with the Warrenton Group and Torti Gallas Urban. There will be a total of 550 housing units, 488 of which will be affordable; at least 274 parking spaces will also be provided, along with 150 spaces along a network of newly-created and -extended streets.
The first phase involves a planned-unit development between Kenilworth and Anacostia Avenues at Douglas Street. Two four-story multi-family buildings will deliver 75 one-bedroom units, 30 two-bedrooms units, a single four-bedroom and a single five-bedroom. There will also be 43-50 three-story rowhouses, ranging from two- to five-bedrooms, including some townhouses with two stacked units. These will have either rear parking or internal parking garages.
