Today, UrbanTurf continues our tour of neighborhood developments around the region as we take a look at the residential pipeline in and around DC's Starburst intersection. 

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 nearly complete. If we missed a large development below, shoot us an email at editor(at)urbanturf.com.

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

Hechinger Mall Redevelopment

It has been four 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 is building an all-affordable development with 148 residential units at Benning Road and 16th Street NE (map). The design of the building accommodates dedicated program space for the Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) provider and Community of Hope to facilitate support of the families residing in the units set aside for PSH.

1701 H St NE

A 180-unit building with 15,000 square feet of ground-floor retail at  1701 H Street NE (map) is nearing completion. There are eleven Inclusionary Zoning (IZ) units for households earning up to 50% of area median income (AMI) and at least six units for households earning up to 80% of AMI. The building will also have 45 below-grade parking spaces. Grubb Properties is the developer and WDG Architecture is the designer. 

1801-1805 Maryland Avenue

Plans were filed with DC's Board of Zoning Adjustment (BZA) back in 2021 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.
