Since January, 2003
            
 Sliding from Before to After

Not quite six months after buying the land on the northeast corner of Half and N streets across from Nats Park currently known as Monument Valley, the MacFarlane/Jair Lynch joint venture has now submitted to the Zoning Commission its new plans for the site, a 10-story building with 461,700 square feet of residential (and possibly hotel) development, combined with at least 60,000 square feet of retail.
Back a couple of lifetimes ago, Monument Realty also planned a residential, retail, and hotel project on this site, so this filing is actually a modification to the previously approved plans. The new designs by architectural firm Hord Coplan Macht, seen in these renderings purloined from the zoning filing, would add at least 23,000 square feet of retail to what had been planned, mostly in the second-floor space along Half Street, as shown in the drawing below, as well as potentially an additional 8,000 square feet on the second floor facing N Street, depending on the all-important "market conditions."
The new project would have either 445 residential units and no hotel at all, or 365 residential units and a 80-room hotel on the north end of the site (down from a 200-room hotel in Monument's designs). The new design includes condos (apparently 130ish of them) in the south wing along N Street, with the rest being rental units.
As in the original designs, there would still be a small street called "Monument Place" running between this building and its neighbor to the north, 55 M Street, allowing the retail offerings to wrap around onto the building's north side--however, in these new plans it would be a pedestrian-only street, negating the need for a curb cut on Half Street.
In addition, the basically-an-alley Cushing Place would still be extended through to N Street, through an opening in the ground floor of the south side of Lynch's building. (If you look closely at the top rendering, you can see it.) There would still be three levels of underground parking with approximately 231 spaces. And there would be all manner of streetscape work to make the sidewalks--and the walk to the ballpark--a bit more inviting than they are now.
For you zoning groupies, there's also one special exception being requested, that the project be allowed to have two roof enclosures instead of one on the south wing of the building that fronts N Street. And note that this is all under the Capitol Gateway Overlay design review process.
These new plans will be presented to ANC 6D on Monday night (March 9), with a zoning hearing date apparently as yet unannounced. My Monument Valley project page has a few of the old Monument renderings, should you wish to compare.
UPDATE: The zoning hearing is apparently now scheduled for May 28.

The good thing is once construction does begin, it will go vertical rather quickly! This is exciting to see.


JES says: (3/9/15 11:54 AM)
So I'm not too familiar with construction timelines. Assuming zoning has no issues with this plan, what would be the earliest we'd see construction starting? A year?


JD says: (3/9/15 11:58 AM)
They have said they are targeting 2016. A CG Overlay review is a quicker process than a PUD, especially since this is a modification. Then it's building permits. And finalizing construction financing.



BLT says: (3/9/15 12:39 PM)
Looks like a construction trailer and equipment have arrived at the Homewood Suites site today. They were wotking on the fencing earlier today.

If you're having trouble keeping track of the Half Street 2.0 resurgence, I created this handy graphic:

@BLT, thanks for the update! I look forward to the race amongst readers to be the first to report ground being broken there. :)


BLT says: (3/9/15 3:53 PM)
And the Bonchon signs are going up! I should win a jdland t-shirt for this special reporting. :)


JD says: (3/9/15 5:40 PM)
Since MJM sent me a pic on Twitter showing fencing stuff happening at the Ballpark Square/99 M site, can somebody confirm that there was also stuff happening today at the 50 M/Homewood Suites site? (right across Half from the Big Stick)



BLT says: (3/9/15 5:56 PM)
@jd...I can walk over to 50 M and snap a picture. Can I send to an email?


JD says: (3/9/15 6:01 PM)
Sure! You can just send to jd at jdland etc. Thanks.

(Not that I didn't trust you--just that sometimes people confuse project locations, and since there was action elsewhere, just wanted to be doubly sure.)


BLT says: (3/9/15 6:07 PM)
No problem. Lots going on around here and I'm sure sites are confused often.


JD says: (3/9/15 6:10 PM)
I now have photographic evidence that BLT was correct. :)



Westnorth says: (3/10/15 11:43 AM)
60,000 feet -- finally, a retail space big enough for a "junior anchor." Most of the buildings around here have had spaces <20,000 feet, and there's only so much specialty retail to go around so far.
