Construction is now underway at a mixed-use development just north of the Braddock Road Metro station.
Braddock Gateway Phase II and Phase III broke ground last Friday at 1200 N. Fayette Street, according to an employee at Carmel Partners, the investment company behind Phase III of the project.
Phase II of the project will have 258 residential units and 8,150 square feet of retail while Phase III will have 370 apartment units and approximately 2,700 square feet of ground-floor retail, according to a staff report.
The project will also add to some of the surrounding infrastructure.
“Infrastructure, streetscape and open space improvements are also proposed with this development application, including the extension of North Fayette Street to Slaters Lane and construction of a new public pocket park on the adjacent parcel that is owned by the City,” the report said.
An underground parking garage is planned, with 337 parking spaces.
The site is built above what was once home to Metro Church DC and a large parking lot. The report notes that the new development conforms to city plans to create a more walkable Braddock neighborhood.
The employee at Carmel Partners said no one in their office knew when the project was expected to be completed.
Hey @AlexandriaNow, do you know what is currently being built at the old "Metro Church" site near the Braddock metro? It's a massive lot.
