The plans for Shaw's Parcel 42 have come into focus after the site lay dormant for years.
Dantes Partners will construct a 10-story building with 110 apartments above retail on the 15,317 square-foot, city-owned site at 1707 7th Street NW (map). Of the apartments, 108 will be affordable to households earning up to 30%, 50%, and 80% of area median income, and 77 will be one-bedrooms. The plans were shared at the ANC 6E meeting on Tuesday. In late December, the Washington Business Journal reported that building permits had been filed for the site.
The ground-floor retail space is envisioned as including public access to a lounge-like lobby during the day, similar to how The Apollo on H Street operates. The building will also include a fitness center, lounge/coworking space, a residential bicycle room, and 18 surface parking spaces.
The exterior building materials include HardiePanel with a woodgrain design, and the triangular parcel across the alley will serve as public space with a 60-foot long art installation. Grimm + Parker is the architect.
The city most recently solicited development proposals for the site six years ago, selecting a development team in 2016. The previous plans were for a seven-story development with 118 apartments (30% affordable), 8,000 square feet of retail, and a public park. The Office of Planning applied to upzone the site from ARTS-2 to ARTS-4 in summer 2020.
The development team hopes to break ground this quarter and deliver in 2024.
