Apparently one Union Market in the otherwise desolate warehouse district of Northeast D.C. isn't enough for the developers at Edens Realty. They have a second project in the works for that neighborhood that's even more ambitious than the popular warehouse turned food market. A few blocks away, they're looking to develop a 51,000 square foot site and fill it with 520 apartments across eleven stories, 550 parking spaces across five stories, 40,000 square feet of retail options and a partridge in a pear tree. It beats the desolation that's sitting there right now. For years on Florida Avenue, a sign sat on a vacant lot that said, "Soon You Won't Recognize The Place. We Promise." That lot is still sitting there, but due to this project and the Angelika Theatre, that promise for the entire neighborhood may come to fruition.
