A long-empty Harvard Ave E lot just behind Broadway’s mammoth Joule development is slated for a seven-story, workforce apartment project.
The project at 515 Harvard Ave E is planned as a seven-story, 75-unit building with underground parking for 24 vehicles. By providing a percentage of the units at affordable levels, the building will qualify for the extra floor of height above the six-story limit in the zone. It will be developed by Maria Barrientos who also built Capitol Hill’s Chloe and who lately has been involved in developing the properties of Capitol Hill real estate investor Ron Amundson.
The Harvard Ave E land is owned by Greg Stein who acquired the parcels for $1.85 million in 2001.
In 2010, CHS noted the impressive field of wildflowers — and weeds — that had cropped up and covered the lot.
The project will have its first design review in May.
Before that, there’s a chock-full schedule of design reviews for new Capitol Hill projects. We’ll have more on the next round — including a six-story mixed-use project slated for the corner of 12th and E Pike — soon.
