1617 U Street, NW

The site comprises two lots (square 175, lots 826 and 827) that front 17th Street NW, U Street NW, and V Street NW. It is within walking distance of the U Street (Green/Yellow Lines) Metrorail station and multiple bus stops. The site’s location near transit and its proximity to the U Street Corridor and 14th Street, whose neighborhoods are experiencing robust population growth and maintain an active nightlife, makes it an attractive site prime for new investment.

The property is currently zoned MU-4, however the 2021 Comprehensive Plan envisions this site as high-density mixed-use, allowing for significant upzoning potential. The property is also PUD eligible and is excluded from all historic districts.

The municipal uses on site, including an active fire station (Engine Company 9) and an active police station (Third District headquarters), are contemplated to remain onsite upon redevelopment.
