With the closure of the Wendy's at the center of DC's "Dave Thomas Circle" and plans for a street reconfiguration, the intersection of New York and Florida Avenues NE (map) will look markedly different a few years from now. Add in a few large residential developments, and the area may eventually be unrecognizable.
Below, UrbanTurf takes a look at the residential projects in the works within a block or two of Dave Thomas Circle. If we missed one, shoot us an email at editor(at)urbanturf.com.

Plans for a 116-unit development at the site of the Covenant House building at 7 New York Avenue NE (map) are moving full steam ahead as the building is close to topping out. Designed by Eric Colbert & Associates, the by-right development would rise 14 stories and forgo vehicular parking.
Note: An earlier version of this entry incorrectly indicated that this development had been delayed and was being developed by JBG SMITH.
Across the street from Dave Thomas Circle, JBG SMITH's plans at the site of the McDonald's at 55 and 75 New York Avenue NE (map) will be delayed. The developer recently filed for a two-year extension for the project with DC's Board of Zoning Adjustment, citing difficulty obtaining project financing due to economic and market conditions.
The first phase of the proposed development would deliver 500 apartments above 13,130 square feet of ground-floor retail and a 5,250 square-foot rooftop bar/restaurant, and the second phase would deliver 305 apartments above 9,125 square feet of retail, a 4,000 square-foot fast food restaurant, and pet boarding.
The initial phase would also provide 273 below-grade parking spaces and up to 220 long-term bicycle spaces for residents, along with a rooftop pool deck and six small second-floor clubrooms. Hord Coplan Macht is the architect.
22 P Street
Aria Development has plans in the works for a 14-story building with 172 units at 22 P Street NE (map).
Douglas Development filed plans in 2021 for a new project on the triangular parking lot at First Street and New York Avenue NE (map). The proposed development would deliver 557 market-rate units and 10,550 square feet of ground-floor retail (including pet boarding) in a 13-story building topped with a publicly-accessible indoor/outdoor restaurant/bar.
The project would also provide 264 parking and 120 bicycle storage spaces on two below-grade levels, and amenities would include a rooftop infinity pool. HOK Architects is the designer.
At Florida Avenue and the railroad tracks (map), MRP Realty is in the final stages of a 15-story building with 254 apartments and 2,984 square feet of retail. Twenty-three of the units will be affordable for residents making up to 60% of AMI, and there would also be 41 below-grade residential parking spaces. The building will likely deliver in the fall.
