With the closure of the Wendy's at the center of DC's "Dave Thomas Circle" and plans for a street reconfiguration, the intersection of New York and Florida Avenues NE (map) will look markedly different a few years from now. Add in several large residential developments, and the area may eventually be unrecognizable.
Below, UrbanTurf takes a look at the residential projects in the works within a block or two of Dave Thomas Circle. If we missed one, shoot us an email at editor(at)urbanturf.com.

The Exxon at Florida Avenue and North Capitol Street NE (map) has been razed and construction is underway on a 388-unit, 13-story-plus-penthouse project by Aria Development.
22 P Street
Aria Development also has plans in the works next door at 22 P Street NE (map) for a 14-story building with 172 units.
A 116-unit development is on the boards at the site of the Covenant House building at 7 New York Avenue NE (map). Designed by Eric Colbert & Associates, the by-right development would rise 14 stories and forgo vehicular parking. DC's Board of Zoning Adjustment approved an application for this project at the beginning of the summer.
Across the street from Dave Thomas Circle, JBG SMITH has plans for the site of the McDonald's at 55 and 75 New York Avenue NE (map). The first phase of the proposed development would deliver 500 apartments above 13,130 square feet of ground-floor retail and a 5,250 square-foot rooftop bar/restaurant, and the second phase would deliver 305 apartments above 9,125 square feet of retail, a 4,000 square-foot fast food restaurant, and pet boarding.
The first phase would also provide 273 below-grade parking spaces and up to 220 long-term bicycle spaces for residents, along with a rooftop pool deck and six small second-floor clubrooms. Hord Coplan Macht is the architect.
Douglas Development filed plans in 2021 for a new project on the triangular parking lot at First Street and New York Avenue NE (map). The proposed development would deliver 557 market-rate units and 10,550 square feet of ground-floor retail (including pet boarding) in a 13-story building topped with a publicly-accessible indoor/outdoor restaurant/bar.
The project would also provide 264 parking and 120 bicycle storage spaces on two below-grade levels, and amenities would include a rooftop infinity pool. HOK Architects is the designer.
It was also announced last year that a new 1.2 million square-foot Securities and Exchange Commission headquarters campus will be constructed on the same site.
At Florida Avenue and the railroad tracks (map), MRP Realty is working on a 15-story building with 254 apartments and 2,984 square feet of retail. Twenty-three of the units will be affordable for residents making up to 60% of AMI, and there would also be 41 below-grade residential parking spaces.
