The development pipeline east of DC's H Street Corridor has dwindled to just a handful of large projects that are either inching forward or are full steam ahead. Today, UrbanTurf takes a look at the residential developments still in the works north and east of the Starburst intersection. 

In case you missed them, here are the other neighborhoods we have covered thus far this year:

Hechinger Mall Redevelopment

It has been three years since developers MRP Realty and JM Zell went under contract to purchase the 40 year-old, 190,000 square foot shopping center at Hechinger Mall (map); plans for what comes next are still unclear at this time.


Foulger-Pratt was awarded Housing Production Trust Fund financing last year for a 148-unit all-affordable building at Benning Road and 16th Street NE (map)

1701 H St NE

Grubb Properties is nearing completion on its new 181-unit apartment building at 1701 H St NE (map). The building, designed by WDG Architecture, will have 46 below-grade parking spaces and up to 15,000 square feet of ground-floor retail. At least 11 of the building's inclusionary zoning (IZ) units will be for households earning up to 50% of AMI and at least six units for households earning up to and 80% of AMI.

1801-1805 Maryland Avenue

Plans filed with DC's Board of Zoning Adjustment (BZA) last year outline plans for a 28-unit development at 1801-1805 Maryland Avenue NE (map). Eleven of the residences will be two-bedroom units and the remaining apartments will be one-bedrooms. The building, designed by Square 134 Architects, will have three surface parking spaces and ten bicycle parking spots.
