The redevelopment of the H Street Connection was finally approved at last night's Zoning Commission meeting.
ANC 6A has worked with the developer for the past 3 years to create a building that would anchor the 8th and H corner and spur the redevelopment of the central part of the H Street Corridor. The new building will bring over 50,000 square feet of retail space and over 300 new residential units to the H Street Corridor. In addition, the building was designed to fit into the architectural fabric of H Street, and read as eight separate buildings rather than a single monolithic structure.
Although construction on this project will not begin for at least another 2 years, the Zoning Commission's approval of this project means that it has cleared its most significant regulatory hurdle. With the approval of this project, the completion of the streetscape in 2011, and the arrival of the Streetcar in 2012, the future is bright for H Street.
