New designs are emerging for JBG SMITH’s massive development plans at Gallaudet University. The development team is expected to file their next planned unit development (PUD) application soon.
The completed PUD covers six acres of university-owned land – 6th Street between Morse Street and Neal Place NE. It is estimated to deliver 129,000 square feet of retail, 449,000 square feet of office and administrative space, and up to 1,769 residential units. The two parcels that will be included in the upcoming application will deliver mixed-use buildings on either side of 6th Street.
Parcel 2, on the Gallaudet side of the street, will include three residential buildings (5-7 floors) designed by Olson Kundig. Two of the three buildings will be connected by bridge. The connected buildings will include retail along 6th Street and school amenities fronting the campus street Creativity Way. The third building sits to the north and has a Union Market-inspired design.
The Union Market surface parking lot is Parcel 3, which will host an 11-story, Morris Adjmi-designed building and which will connect to Union Market. This parcel will also replace lost public parking.
The PUD will incorporate DeafSpace design principles.
