Level 2 Development’s 315-unit project adjacent to Union Market has set a planned delivery date for late 2018.
The project, dubbed The Highline at Union Market — undoubtedly a nod to the urban-industrial aesthetic of the New York project bearing the same name — will be built on the site of a Burger King at 320 Florida Avenue NE (map). Developers filed a planned-unit development application for the project on Thursday morning. Eric Colbert is the architect on the project, which will include 8,400 square feet of retail and 143 parking spaces.
In a news release, Level 2 said the building would be constructed to LEED Silver standards and have 105 bike spaces. The company is hoping to break ground on the project in late 2016.
The development has increased in scope since it was first floated by Level 2 in fall 2014. In early January, Level 2 told an ANC 6C committee that the development would have small-sized unitssimilar to those of The Harper, another Level 2 project located on 14th Street NW. The company is also partnering with Edens on another residential development in Union Market.
