Deanwood is getting noticed more and more, and that should be of no surprise.

In August 2017, Redfin deemed the Northeast D.C. neighborhood one of the hottest neighborhoods in the U.S. In a statement, Redfin real estate agent Steve Centrella said, “You can get more home for your money, while staying within the city borders.”

Furthermore, in December 2017, Walnut Street Finance CEO Bobby Montagne told Curbed DC that Deanwood is one of the neighborhoods worth watching in 2018 when it comes to new projects and heightened popularity amongst homebuyers.

Five years ago, visitors of this neighborhood would have been “reluctant” to move there because “generally, there’s nothing to do there,” said Montagne. Now, with so many new projects on the pipeline, it should be clear that Deanwood is one lesser-known area worth keeping an eye on. Below, take a look at what new projects should be expected.

Were there any projects left off this map? Let Curbed DC know in the comments or email the tipline.

Note: The mapped points have been listed geographically, from most north to most south.

Developer: WMATA

As first reported by UrbanTurf, this project hopes to eliminate the 1.6-acre Park and Ride surface lot at Deanwood Metro station to make way for one of two scenarios. The first scenario calls for 138-unit mixed-use building with 10,000 square feet of retail, and a four-story, above-grade garage with 300 spaces. The second scenario plans for 160 apartments above 10,000 square feet of retail with no parking component.

More housing is coming to the neighborhood. The developers are planning on constructing 150 affordable residences, 50 of which would replace public housing at Lincoln Heights and Richardson Dwellings. There will also be 75 parking spaces, a gym, and a playground.

5110 Nannie Helen Burroughs Ave NE
Washington, DC 20019

Developer: The Warrenton Group

This site currently houses a baptist church and a four-story office building. Soon, though, the land may be redeveloped for over 180 residences and retail. There are plans to construct two buildings, a 65-foot-tall building with 151 units above 10,000 square feet of ground-floor retail and a 63-foot-tall building with 32 units above 6,000 square feet of ground-floor retail.

61 residential units will be replacement units for the Lincoln Heights/Richardson Dwellings. 104 units will also be designated for affordable housing for households making up to 60 percent of the area median income.

5. 5119 Nannie Helen Burroughs Ave NE

5119 Nannie Helen Burroughs Ave NE
Washington, DC 20019

Developer: The Warrenton Group

In an application filed with the Zoning Commission, the developer is asking for the site to be rezoned from MU-3 to MU-5-A. The proposal is to redevelop the property with a mixed-use building containing 1,389 square feet of ground-floor retail and 1,233 square feet of community space topped by a six-story apartment building.

This 78,546-square-foot apartment building will feature 86 residential units, 28 of which will be replacement units for the Lincoln Heights and Richardson Dwellings properties controlled by the DCHA.

There will also be a ground-level parking garage with 17 vehicle spaces and 38 bicycle spaces.

Along with all of this, the developer hopes to renovate the historic Strand Theater, which is adjacent to this project. A commercial tenant is hoped for the space.
