In the Northeast D.C. neighborhood, Michigan Park, EYA is planning on constructing 90 rowhouses on four acres of land. Greater Greater Washington reported that two acres of unused land will also be turned into a park. EYA has partnered with the Josephites, who own the land, to develop the project, dubbed 12th and Allison.
The row houses will surround Webster Street NE, a street that will also be extended to 12th Street NE. Greater Greater Washington further reported that the developer hopes to rezone the site from R-2 to R5, which will allow for the construction of rowhouses. According to a presentation EYA gave on April 13, 10 percent of the residential units will be designated for affordable housing.
The renderings you see in this article are not final and may change. EYA expects to present their updated plans to the community by mid-May when the Planned Unit Development is filed with the District.
