Zoning to Decide on 670-Unit Project on Anacostia River in Early 2015: Figure 1

A four-stage plan to turn an industrial site on the Anacostia River into a 670-unit residential complex will likely move forward in 2015.

Cohen Companies, the developer on the project, is awaiting a Zoning Commission decision on the first stage of its planned unit development at 1333 M Street SE (map), which is bounded by M Street, Water Street and Virginia Avenue SE a few blocks south of Potomac Avenue Metro. A hearing before the commission on Monday night included mostly statements of support for the project, including from ANC 6B, and commissioners seemed largely supportive of the plan. The Office of Planning also supports the plan.

The first phase of the four-stage project will include construction of a 10-story, 218-unit residential building. When finished, the 2.9-acre site will have three buildings with four towers housing a total of 673 residential units and a modest 10,000 square feet of retail. There will be 220 parking spaces on site. The project will also feature public green space on the waterfront and adjacent to the buildings, including a wildflower garden and a dog park.

The project will be heard before the board again on January 12.
