Since September 2017, NoMa’s planned three-building Central Armature Works project has been stalled due to an appeal by a group of residents, known as Union Market Neighbors. Since 2016, the group has also appealed four other NoMa projects, totaling over 3,500 residential units and at least 250,000 square feet of retail. Recently, the appeal for the Central Armature Works project has been dismissed.

When it comes to what to expect for now, the 2.43-acre project is planned to bring 465 apartments, 170 condos, 50,000 square feet of retail, and a public plaza. There will also be The James Hotel on the site with 204 rooms, 10,000 square feet of meeting space, and a ground-floor restaurant. The hotel will also include a rooftop bar.

The project, located only a block away from the NoMa Metro station, is expected to deliver by 2020.

The architect behind the project is Shalom Baranes Associates.
