If approved by the DC Zoning Commission, a new 188-unit residential development might soon be built on 9 acres at 6000 New Hampshire Avenue NE, the former site of a Medstar Health nursing home. The Jarvis Company and Four Points (formerly West*Group) Development have submitted plans to build 61 condominiums, 27 single-family homes, and 100 townhouses to the Zoning Commission, which will decide on October 16 whether to rezone this area to allow mixed residential development (it currently only allows single-family residences). This secluded corner of Northeast DC, mid-way between the Fort Totten and Takoma metro stops, has seen little development in the past – a fact that is expected to keep the unit prices for this project on the affordable side. Project timeline and other details have yet to be released.
