There will soon be a brand spanking new seven-screen movie theater with approximately 1,200 seats only one block away from the NoMa-Gallaudet Metro station. UrbanTurf reported that the Board of Zoning Adjustment approved the project, located on a parcel of land that is bounded by N Street NE to the north, 1st Street NE to the east, M Street NE to the south, and North Capitol Street NE to the west. The site currently houses a seven-story office building, two-story office building, and surface parking lots. The developments currently on the site will be razed for the movie theater as well as 147,135-square-feet of residential space in a 12-story tower with 210 units, 382,000-square-feet of office space in an 11-story tower, approximately 28,000-square-feet of ground-floor retail, and a four-level below-grade parking garage with 245 spaces. Shalom Baranes Associates, David M. Schwarz Inc., and Cooper Carry Inc. are the architects of the project, while the developer is the Chevy Chase-based firm The JBG Companies.
