Heads up for those interested in what’s going on with U Street’s next big development!
Tomorrow night, Washington developer JBG Cos. will host a meeting to discuss their proposed design for the development at 13th and U Street NW. The meeting will begin at 7 pm at Cork Market on 14th Street NW. JBG Cos. is asking for community feedback before their meeting with the ANC’ 1B’s design review committee on June 18.
The developer’s original plans were for a hotel, but that concept was met with opposition from area residents. Instead, the southeast corner of 13th and U will be a residential-retail complex. (See No Hotel for 13th and U, Project Will Be Residential Says JBG.) JBG Cos. is also the main developer of the Louis at the southwest corner of 14th and U Streets NW; demolition work has been completed and digging is underway.
- Meeting Date: Wednesday, June 13
- Time: 7 to 9 pm
- What: Design, focusing on JBG’s application to the Historic Preservation Review Board
- Location: Tasting Room above Cork Market at 1720 14th St NW (just north of S Street)
