Developers recently sketched out broad plans to the Zoning Commision for a mixed-use, multi-family project on the site of a Burger King at 3rd Street and Florida Avenue NE, near Union Market. Neighbors are already voicing their concerns. "The biggest concern is that the community went through a really long and comprehensive effort on the small area plan and just want to make sure that the new PUD, going forward, helps to advance the goals in the plan," said Commissioner Mark Eckenwiler.
There is no confirmation from Level 2 on the number of units or the retail square footage for the development, but UrbanTurf reports that there will be approximately 6,000 square feet of retail and hundreds of units
In partnership with Edens Realty and Shalom Baranes Architects, Level 2 is also currently pursuing another PUD near Union Market to build an 11-story, 110-foot development with 40,000 square-feet of retail and 420-520 residential units. The whole project will take up a total of 370,000 square feet.
