A Few More Details on Development of 3223-3225 Georgia Avenue

3223-3225 Georgia Avenue.

3223-3225 Georgia Avenue.

At last night’s meeting of the Georgia Avenue Development Task Force (GADTF), Taylor Kelly of Brick Lane Real Estate, the developer for the properties at 3223-3225 Georgia Avenue (including 650 Lamont Street), was at the meeting and shared a few more details that I didn’t have when I originally posted about this on October 14th.

Most importantly, the new building is planned to be a four story building with nine market rate units that are currently planned to be rentals. The ground floor will have about 1,600 sq. ft. of retail space and there will be a 600 sq. ft. outdoor patio. The plan to seek a cafe type of business for the retail space. The property will also have five parking spaces accessible from the alley.

They hope to have the properties razed in the next three months with a delivery date in the late fall of 2016. One aspect that is very cool is that the buildings will be deconstructed with the building materials salvaged. The crew doing the deconstruction will be part of a jobs training program learning skills for the construction trade.

I’ll continue to provide updates as they become available.

    This is great! Cant wait to see the transformation.

    It’s interesting that this building is going to be nine units – the maximum number allowed before triggering DC’s inclusionary zoning requirement. I wonder if the developer would have sought to build more units if the IZ requirement didn’t exist.

    Great to see they will be salvaging and training new workers. Most of all that they will be moving on it soon, not years down the road (*ahem* Zuckerman Partners)!
