The Wilkes Company plans to build a 401-unit mixed-use development in NoMa, according to a planned-unit development filed Wednesday with the Zoning Commission.

The company has long been planning a development at 300 M Street NE (map), currently occupied by a surface parking lot. They initially floated an academic park for the space, and previously considered a 350-unit development for the site.

The new 110-foot building would have two levels of underground parking totaling 175 spaces; 9,000 to 12,900 square feet of ground-level retail; walk-up residences on the first story; and residences upstairs. Hickok Cole Architects is designing the building.

As for the type of units that the project will have, the zoning documents state that the residences along M Street will have a loft-like, “townhouse vernacular” with porches and individual entries.

Wilkes, operating as M Street Development Group with Square 772 Development Group, proposes constructing the building to LEED Silver standards.
