More Changes Coming to H Street

Previous reports on the redevelopment of H Street NE have usually focused on the western Union Station side (The Senate Square / Landmark Lofts condo project at 3rd and H Street) and the eastern end (Joe Englert's entertainment district and the Atlas Theater), but never the sandwiched middle portion of the block. This will soon, change, as the Washington Business Journal is reporting that Washington Real Estate Partners is planning on turning the 600 block of H Street into a 312,000-square-foot residential, retail and office project valued at nearly $150 million. According to documents filed with the DC Board of Zoning Adjustments, Washington Real Estate Partners is hoping to develop an existing 200,000 SF office building into 234 residential units, with 500 parking spaces and ground-floor retail, with the resulting building being nine stories in some parts (which is sure to stir up those hoping to keep the smaller scale of H Street intact).
