New details are emerging on developer CRC Cos.’ plans to turn a series of single-family homes across the street from the Braddock Metro station into a mixed-use development called Braddock West, as first reported by the Washington Business Journal.
The new development is proposed to be seven stories tall, overshadowing the existing Andrew Adkins housing which is also slated for eventual redevelopment. The project is slated to include 174 residential units, with 8-12 committed affordable units.
The developer said in a report late last month that the new project is designed to be “a gateway” to further retail development close to the Braddock Metro station.
The ground floor of the project is proposed to be a mix of retail and residential lobby space. Like the nearby development in the works at 701 N. Henry Street, plans for the ground floor include flexible space that could shift from other uses to retail as future nearby development allows.
The project is planned to have access via Wythe and Madison streets with a pick-up/drop-off along West Street. The project is slated to include 105 parking spaces.
