Even More Residential Planned For Area Around Union Market


The pipeline of residential projects for the area around Union Market continues to grow, with a residential project at a site adjacent to Gallaudet University the latest addition.

LCOR has filed plans for a 270-unit residential development with 20k SF of retail at 500 and 530 Morse St NE. The developer has also included a smaller option in its filing with the Zoning Commission, which would shrink the residential portion to 207 units and drop the retail to 14,400 SF, Urban Turf reports.

The site is currently home to parking lots and two commercial buildings. SK + I Architectural Design Group has been tasked with design for the project, which is also slated to include underground parking.

The red-hot Union Market area been tagged as a hot neighborhood of the future, but the future may be now with scores of residential projects in the works. Back in November, Kettler proposed a massive development known as Market Terminal, which will bring four new residential buildings with 975 units to a site less than two blocks west of Union Market. Not too far away, JBG Cos and Gallaudet University are teaming up for a massive mixed-use development along 6th Street NE that is slated to include 1,800 residential units in the first stage. 

Bill Hard, EVP at LCOR, will be a featured speaker at Bisnow's Northeast DC Update event, which is coming up on Wednesday, April 13 at Three Constitution Square, 175 N Street NE.. [UT]
