Big residential plans are on the boards for the former location of Martha's Table on 14th Street NW, UrbanTurf has learned. 

Madison Investments is proposing to redevelop the entire block of 14th Street between V and W Streets NW (map) with a seven-story mixed-use project with habitable penthouse designed by Perkins Eastman that will deliver 241 residences and 39,382 square feet of commercial space.

 Of the commercial space, 7,882 square feet will be for office use at 2122 14th Street, 25,500 square feet will be for retail, and 3,752 square feet will be for other purposes. Roughly 75-80 parking spaces (half for residents) will be on a below-grade level, along with 73 bicycle parking spaces.

The Valero gas station at 1400 W Street NW will be razed as part of the development, but the historic garage building at 2114-2116 14th Street NW will be preserved and incorporated into the building design. 

Madison Investments went under contract on the former Martha's Table headquarters last summer, competing with a number of other bidders for the property. Martha's Table will be moving to two new locations this year: a space on Columbia Road NW in Adams Morgan, and a large new headquarters in Anacostia. 

Madison is no stranger to 14th Street development, having constructed the 56-unit luxury development Elysium Fourteen down the block a couple years ago and Elysium Logan, a 32-unit luxury condo development just off 14th Street on Rhode Island Avenue where sales are currently happening. 

"We are really excited to be bringing a dynamic mixed-use development to the former site of Martha’s Table who will be moving this year to their newly built facility," Madison's Barry Madani told UrbanTurf. "Our intent is to develop a property that will provide engaging retail, beautifully designed residential as well as boutique office, and in doing so create a property that will be a wonderful addition to the already exciting 14th street corridor."

The developers are seeking a special exception and variance from the current ARTS-3 zoning governing that block. The application is expected to be considered by the Board of Zoning Adjustment on March 7th.
