Two years ago, more than 1,500 residential units were in the works for the H Street Corridor. Now, more than 800 of those residences have delivered, but there are still plenty more on the boards.

Today, UrbanTurf is turning fresh eyes to the Corridor to see what's up next in the development pipeline.

Just past the Hopscotch Bridge at 313-327 H Street NE (map), MRP Realty is in the final stages of constructing this 9-story, 112-unit development. The unit mix will include studios to two-bedrooms ranging from 400 to 1,310 square feet, some with terraces or juliet balconies. The nearly 7,000 square feet of street-level retail is expected to include two restaurants; 29 parking spaces will be on a below-grade level.

Amenities will include a 4-screen TV wall, bike storage and repair station, a fitness center, ground-floor courtyard with fireplace and outdoor TV, a rooftop clubroom with kitchen and a rooftop terrace with grills and TVs. The project, designed by Hord Coplan Macht, is expected to deliver this spring.
