Foulger-Pratt Acquiring Another Eckington Property To Build 144K SF Storage Facility
The developer is under contract to acquire the property at 72 Florida Ave. NE from the Herson family, and it plans to build a 144K SF self-storage facility, the Washington Business Journal reports.
The property has been the longtime home of the Herson Glass Co. Upon acquiring the site, Foulger-Pratt filed a large-tract review application to build the five-story facility.
Two blocks away, Foulger-Pratt is planning a 335-unit Eckington Park project, which will have 18K SF of retail and sit next to the NoMa Green, a planned two-acre park. That project also sits next to JBG Smith's planned 695-unit Eckington Yards development.
Across the tracks on Third Street NE, Foulger-Pratt has received Zoning Commission approval to build Press House at Union District, a mixed-use project that will include 372 units, a 175-room hotel and ground-floor retail. The project is currently stalled as it faces appeal from a group of neighbors organized by well-known activist Chris Otten.
