Today, UrbanTurf continues our tour of neighborhood developments around the region as we take a look at the residential pipeline in and around Shaw.

Projects in the Howard University pipeline aside, hundreds of units are on the boards and in the works in the neighborhood along 9th Street NW.

Below, UrbanTurf revisits the larger developments coming to the Shaw area, from Cardozo to Mount Vernon Square Metro. If we missed a large development, 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:


1322 9th Street NW

Kadida Development Group and Architextual have plans in the works for a 40-unit apartment building on the lot located at 1322 9th Street NW (map). The units will range in size from approximately 420 square feet to 1,100 square feet. 

The Calloway

The Calloway, a 39-unit condo development, is in the works for the surface parking lot behind the old Bohemian Caverns building at 11th and U Streets NW (map). The six-story project, received approval from the Historic Preservation Review Board (HPRB) in 2021. Torti Gallas and Partners is the architect.

Manna Mixed-Use

The DC Zoning Commission approved a map amendment application in 2022 filed by New Community Church and nonprofit developer Manna to rezone a portion of the 600 block of S Street NW (map) across from the Wonder Bread factory. This will enable a by-right redevelopment at the current site of Manna's satellite office, wrapping the church with new construction to deliver 80 apartments and a new, three-story office space for Manna. 

The units will be affordable to households earning up to 30% and 60% of AMI, and the development will also incorporate the façades of the rowhouses at 618 and 620 S Street and provide 25 below-grade parking spaces. 

Station U and O

Station U and O, a 108-unit all-affordable development at Parcel 42, the city-owned site at 1707 7th Street NW (map), officially opened its doors earlier this year. The 10-story development from Dantes Partner has retail that includes daytime public access to a lounge-like lobby.

The building also has a fitness center, lounge/coworking space, a residential bicycle room, and 18 surface parking spaces. Grimm + Parker is the architect. 


1515 9th Street NW

A raze application was filed about a month ago for a 45-unit residential development from Monarch Urban at 1515 9th Street NW (map). The site currently consists of a two-story commercial building and a surface parking lot. 

The new development, designed by KASA Architecture, will consist of a mix of one- and two-bedroom residences. The project will be subject to Inclusionary Zoning (IZ) Plus and will be required to set aside 18% of the condos for IZ units.

7th and P Streets

Trammell Crow subsidiary High Street Residential is working on a 90 foot-tall building with 230 apartments above 7,440 square feet of retail at 7th and P Streets NW (map). Twenty-nine of the units will be affordable to households earning up to 60% of AMI, and amenities will include a rooftop pool deck. Eric Colbert & Associates is the designer. The development will also deliver a public art element on P Street and provide 56 vehicular parking and 65 long-term bicycle spaces.  

New Bethany Infill Development

A 45-unit residential development is planned for New Bethany Baptist Church's parking lot at 1301 11th Street NW (map). The four-story project will also have habitable cellar and penthouse levels and will also include nine surface parking spaces. Gragg Cardona Partners and EHT Traceries are the developers and Eric Colbert & Associates is the architect.

Washington Apartments Redevelopment

It appears that MidCity still plans to move forward with replacing the 63-unit Washington Apartments Complex in the 1200 block of 5th Street NW (map) with a 363-unit development.

The project would include 40 IZ units for households earning up to 60% AMI and three for households earning up to 50% AMI. The Torti Gallas Urban-designed building would also have rooftop solar panels, a 103-space parking garage with electric vehicle charging stations, bicycle storage with e-bike charging outlets, and a pool-topped bridge between its two volumes.
