WBJ: Two New Proposals for H Street
Hikari will stand alone as the rest of the block faces redevelopment
The Washington Business Journal has articles on two projects headed to H Street. The first of these projects is located at 1401 Florida Ave (that weird triangular lot between Florida and H Street as you approach the Starburst Intersection). According to the article, we're looking at a six story mixed-use building with 34 residential units, and 5,600 sqft of retail.
The second article focuses on the Rock Creek Property Group's parcels (on the north side of the 600 block of H Street, and immediately to the right of Hikari Sushi if you stand on the south side of H Street and look towards I Street). RCPG acquired the properties over the summer from Pilgrim Baptist Church. That project will include preservation of the historic facade at 654 H Street (other buildings will be demolished) in the construction of a mixed-use project with up to 32 residential units, and 15,000 sqft of retail.
