Update on the St. Matthews Redevelopment in Southwest Waterfront

At last night’s ANC 6D meeting, representatives behind the redevelopment of a new St. Matthew’s Church and an 11-story apartment complex at 22 M Street SW (map) received approval on their revised PUD application.
Developers Trammell Crow and CSG Urban Partners are working with architect Shalom Baranes on the redevelopment of the church site, which will include a 220-unit apartment project at the corner of M Street and Delaware Avenue SW. The apartments will be open to everyone, including non-church members, and the complex will also have facilities like a sanctuary space, classrooms, and a coffee shop called Sacred Grounds.
The group introduced a few changes since they initially presented plans to the ANC in June, including planning for more green space and affordable units. They are aiming for LEED Silver certification and will have 1/3 of an acre set aside as a courtyard, open to the public during the day. The parking lot will have electric car charging stations, Zipcar parking and bicycle parking. The modern, glassy, rectilinear design was inspired by other developments around the neighborhood, like Potomac Place Towers. Construction will start sometime in 2012 and should be complete by 2014.
In other news, the Urban Atlantic Development team behind 1150 and 1151 4th Street SW (map) presented an informal update on their project. The two apartment buildings going up at the site of a former EPA building will be known as Sky House I and II (previously Waterside Metro Lofts) and will break ground soon — the crane has already arrived for the East tower, they told the group, and the West building is three months behind. Each building will take about 22 months to complete, and the complex will bring 500 apartments to the SW Waterfront.
