Braddock West Project Headed to Planning Commission Later This Year

Months after it was first announced, a new mixed use development called Braddock West is headed to the Planning Commission later this year.

The proposal includes new plans unveiled earlier this fall, showing the seven-story building planned to be located directly east of the Braddock Metro station.

According to the application, the project will be a 180-unit facility with ground floor retail. Between 8-12 units are slotted to be committed affordable housing in exchange for the added density.

The project is adjacent to the Andrew Adkins housing, which is also slated for eventual redevelopment despite ongoing delays.

The ground floor of the project is planned to be a series of flexible retail spaces. The application includes a note that the project will likely seek ABC license approval, meaning some of the ground floor space could be used as a restaurant.
