In December we wrote about a development coming soon on top of nearby Union Market. Although it is not in Brookland, we thought readers would be interested in knowing that the development we wrote about is really only the beginning of a development frenzy about to take place around Union Market.

According to this article in the Washingtonian, there is going to be a boom of eight new housing, retail and green space developments in the next five years, which will include:

  • The Edison residences at 340 Florida Ave NE will be the first residential development in the Union Market area and will have ground-floor retail. The 187 rental units will resemble lofts and feature wide, nine-paneled windows.
  • Another residential development on Fourth Street, NE, may have up to 500 apartments, and will incorporate an existing 1950s warehouse.
  • The expansion of Union Market at 1309 Fifth St. NE which will top Union Market  with the Angelika Film Center and four floors of office or residential space.
  • The Highline, an 315 rental unit development at 320 Florida Avenue will replace the  Burger King near the Metro tracks and  expects to break ground by July 2016.
  • Another apartment building, Elevation is replacing a vacant lot. The developer, Level 2, is hoping to get the city of DC to convert property next to development into a park with a pedestrian walkway that leads to Union Market.
  • A three-block pedestrian promenade, called the NoMa Meander is planned that will include green areas and water features,.
  • Underground parks featuring artwork beneath four underpasses created by Metro and Amtrak tracks should begin by the end of 2015.

  1. Good Morning Sir/Madam,
    25,000
    I am wondering if you have units that will go by your income @ 50% like Mission first has? If so I am very interested in one for my cousin who is handicapped/disabled and I to share. I love what I see that your organization is doing just hope it also helps the little guys like me who make only $25,000 a year. Let me know cause as I said perhaps you do have other properties with the ability to allow low income working people to live in luxury also.

    Thank you for your time & consideration.
