Douglas Development recently updated its bold plans for the historic Hecht Warehouse at 1401 New York Avenue NE (map) in Ivy City.
The latest renderings of the project, submitted to the Zoning Commission in late February, focus on a planned two-story addition in front of the warehouse that will house retail. The space is currently occupied by a large driveway, and the Office of Planning has recommended that the Zoning Commission consider allowing Douglas to build the structure.
The proposed building, designed by Antunovich Associates, would bring another 8,000 square feet of retail to the ambitious project. Washington Business Journal has reported that the building will include a restaurant, coffee shop or more retail.
The plans for the warehouse itself, which were approved by the Commission last June, include 338 residential units on the upper five floors of the seven-story building. The unit breakdown had a clear focus on single renters; Douglas proposed building three micro-units, 56 studios, 100 junior one-bedrooms, 68 one-bedrooms, and seven one-bedrooms with dens. The remaining units are two- and three-bedrooms.

Douglas asked for, and was granted, flexibility to vary unit size by 10 percent in either direction, which is standard.
The warehouse will also include two floors of retail and restaurants totaling 196,000 square feet, plus more than 1,000 parking spaces.
