Market Terminal Development Headed to Union Market
The Washington Business Journal and Urban Turf have details on the massive new Market Terminal development Kettler aims to land in the 300 block of Morse Street in the Florida Avenue Market. That block of Morse actually runs perpendicular to the other blocks of Morse Street in the Market. It's a section of the Market that is almost entirely devoted to wholesale operations (many of those businesses also sell retail, and there's a Korean restaurant and a Latin American bakery over there too). Plans call for razing the one story warehouses and replacing them (and the massive parking lot they encircle) with a two-phase mixed-use project with residential (nearly 1,000 units!), office, and retail space. The Urban Turf piece has a handy map and breakdown of the individual buildings Kettler plans to construct.
