Back in Feb. 2013 we learned that this would become a new development by the Fisher Brothers:

“701 2nd Street, NE is a 10-story, 398,103 square foot building comprised of 377 apartments on the ground to 10th floor, approximately 20,000 square feet of retail space located along H, 2nd, and G Streets, and 309 parking spaces located on two floors below-grade.
The location of the development offers more convenient access to mass transit than any other luxury multifamily project in Washington, DC with covered access via an entrance across 2nd Street to Union Station, allowing access to every major mass transit provider in Washington, DC (Amtrak, Metro, VRE and MARC). There is slated more than 210,000 square feet of high end retail space, including more than 100 specialty shops and 50,000 square feet of restaurant space.”

    wait is it “20,000 square feet of retail space” or “more than 210,000 square feet of high end retail space, including more than 100 specialty shops”? that is a huge difference.

    • Good question. Maybe the 20,000 fronts H Street and the rest is on the other streets?

      • “The location of the development offers more convenient access to mass transit than any other luxury multifamily project in Washington, DC with covered access via an entrance across 2nd Street to Union Station, allowing access to every major mass transit provider in Washington, DC (Amtrak, Metro, VRE and MARC).

        Maybe they’re referring to Union Station?

        20,000 SF retail in this project

        210,000 SF & 100 shops in adjacent Union Station

        Just very odd phrasing in their previous press release!

    i’m pretty confident there’s no way that building can host 100 specialty shops. maybe more like 10.

    Should be finished in 2014 according to Fisher Brothers

    Does anyone know if the new entrance to Union Station will be open to folks who don’t live in the building? That’d be sweet for people in that area who now have to hike all the way around the front of the station to get in.

      +1. Union SEEMS so close to me but the walking around adds like 10 min to the commute.

      I’ve been trying to find solid info on this, but am coming up empty. If I recall correctly, the connection will be public, not just an amenity of building residents. I hope that’s really true!

      +1 the more entrances the merrier.

      Best. Idea. Ever. Posted.

      Please, please, please include a public entrance/connection to Union Station. I’ll patronize those shops all the time, if so.
