The latest rendering of the project.
After years of stagnation, a project at 6th and M Streets SW (map) will move forward after gaining preliminary approval from the Zoning Commission on Thursday night.
The Commission took proposed action to approve plans for the waterfront site, which is currently occupied by 256 units in two I.M Pei-designed residential towers. The new buildings, with 260 units, will sit about 60 feet from the existing ones.
The plans for The View at Waterfront, adjacent to the billion-dollar Wharf redevelopment, were originally approved by the Commission in 2007. Back then, the project was larger, with 324 new units proposed. The scaled-back plans from Mill Creek were supported by ANC 6D last month. SK&I Architecture designed the project.
Once finished, the site will have a total of 516 residential units. Mill Creek will also add 5,220 square feet of retail, pared back from the originally-approved 8,900, and construct 290 underground parking spaces.
