Elysium Fourteen

From time to time, UrbanTurf takes a look at the residential developments on tap for neighborhoods across DC. Given the recent news surrounding projects in the works for the U Street Corridor, we decided to focus on that area for this installment. In total, more than 1,496 units are slated on and near U Street NW, and we cover those developments, from west to east, below.

Note: We limited the projects that we included to new developments with over 15 residential units. Also, if we missed one, just shoot us an email at editor2015@urbanturf.com

Meridian International Center

The Meridian International Center is seeking to redevelop a portion of its property at approximately 2350 16th Street NW (map) across from Meridian Hill Park. The nonprofit is hoping to construct a 140-unit residential project on the site, which would also include about 90 parking spaces for residents. The project would require the go-ahead from the Historic Preservation Review Board because other buildings on the center’s grounds are historically protected. Streetscape Partners and Westbrook Partners are the developers, and Shalom Baranes Associates is the architect.

In addition to a roof deck, patio and community lounge, the development will have 37 underground parking spaces as well as bike storage.

Portner Place

An 11-story residential project that would include 270 market rate residential units and 96 units affordable to those making 60 percent or less of area median income is on the boards for at 1441-1449 U Street NW (map). Somerset Development Company with New Community Partners, Jonathan Rose Companies, and the Rose Green Cities Fund purchased the 48-unit HUD Section 8 housing Portner Place Apartments next to the Reeves Municipal Center in September 2013.

1355-1357 U Street NW

The Goldstar Group, working with Bonstra|Haresign Architects, is proposing a 100-foot, 25-unit building near the intersection of 14th and U Street. The narrow structure at 1355-1357 U Street NW (map) would be set back 34 feet from the historic rowhomes below it. The development team said they will likely seek zoning relief for the required parking on the site. About eight spots will be required, but only three can fit onsite. The building will likely have a mix of one- and two-bedrooms, and earlier this year the development team said they were leaning going condo with the project.

The building will largely include market-rate units, with 10 percent of the units set aside for those making 80 percent of the area median income and some units set aside for Howard University professors and staff.
