Penn and 4th

EDENS has not one, but two new residential buildings on the boards for the Union Market area. Penn and 4th is a two-building residential development that will take the place of the Motel 6 building and Maurice Electric parking lot just off of New York Avenue (map). The buildings — named 4th and Penn — are designed by HKS Architects and Michael Marshall Design, respectively. There will be a total of 375 apartments, as well as 190 below-grade parking spaces and approximately 30,000 square feet of retail. Approximately 13% of the units will be affordable. 

One of the more interesting aspects is the activated alley space that bisects the new development. Designed by David Rubin Land Collective, this paseo running from 4th to 5th Street NE will provide a neighborhood retail experience within the development. Retail will also flank 4th, 5th and Penn Streets.
