Plans for the largest development on the boards for DC's U Street Corridor are continuing to move forward. 

Eastbanc and Jamestown have filed a planned unit development (PUD) with DC's Zoning Commission for a development with a variety of different property types surrounding the U Street Metro at 13th and U Street NW (map).

The development will consist of 117-143 new residential units, between 55-67 hotel rooms, 15 alley townhomes, and approximately 6,780 square feet of retail. The three-bedroom townhomes will border the historic alley known as Temperance Avenue. Shalom Baranes is the architect.

At least 15% of the units in the large residential building will be devoted to Inclusionary Zoning units set aside for households earning up to 60% of median family income. A portion of Temperance Avenue between the two rows of Townhomes will be converted into a pedestrian walkway open to the public, and the development team has a plan to redesign and significantly upgrade the west entrance of the Metro station.

In addition to a PUD, the development team filed a map amendment to rezone the site from ARTS-1 to ARTS-4 to add height and density, and the alley portion would remain zoned RF-1.

UrbanTurf will continue to monitor the progress of this development as it moves forward.
