By Benning Road NE, there are plans for a new residential development on a site that currently houses a vacant surface parking lot and a storage shed. In the zoning application filed, it states that the all-affordable, rental project will house 59 units, 22 below-grade garage spaces, and 23 bicycle spaces. There will also be an approximately 1,200-square-foot amenity space envisioned for a community room.
The development, located at 3450 Eads Street NE, will be for households earning less than 50 percent of the area median income.
The 56-foot-high building will be divided into two portions, one which spans three stories and another which spans five stories. The five-story portion will house a lobby and leasing or management office. The three-story portion will contain two multi-level units facing the street with separate entries. There will also be five "vegetative roofs," ranging in size from 200 to 1,500 square feet.
According to the application filed, the developer hopes to begin construction by the third quarter of 2018 with a delivery by the fourth quarter of 2019.
