Another proposal has been laid out for a coveted seven-lot site at Florida Avenue and Q Streets NW that the city put out for bid this past summer.
Evergreen Urban recently outlined plans to UrbanTurf for a mixed-use project with retail, residential units (that would include live-work spaces for artists) as well as a theater. Forum Theater, which currently operates out of Silver Spring, has signed on to come to the space if the developer’s proposal is chosen by the city.
Evergreen Urban’s Eric Jenkins said that the proposal includes retail space that could house a restaurant and that Paul Ruppert, whose projects include The Passenger, Room 11 and Upshur Street Books, has expressed interest in the site.
As for the residential component, Jenkins told UrbanTurf that there will be 30-35 market-rate units, including twelve live-work spaces for artists. A portion of the housing will be affordable.
“The residences will not be separate boxes — everything will be integrated,” Jenkins said. “The expectation is that the resident artists can exhibit their work throughout the building, and that there will be a strong sense of community.”
Proposals are due this month and the Department of Housing and Community Development will make a choice on the developer soon after that.
