Foulger-Pratt is adding to its footprint in the NoMa-Eckington area, where it already has two planned projects, with the addition of a 0.85-acre lot on Florida Avenue.
The developer is under contract to acquire the property at 72 Florida Ave. NE from the Herson family, and it plans to build a 144K SF self storage facility, the Washington Business Journal reports.
The property has been the longtime home of the Herson Glass Co. Upon acquiring the site, Foulger-Pratt filed a large-tract review application to build the five-story facility.
Two blocks away, Foulger-Pratt is planning a 335-unit Eckington Park project, which will have 18K SF of retail and sit next to the NoMa Green, a planned two-acre park. That project also sits next to JBG Smith's planned 695-unit Eckington Yards development.
Across the tracks on Third Street NE, Foulger-Pratt has received Zoning Commission approval to build Press House at Union District, a mixed-use project that will include 372 units, a 175-room hotel and ground-floor retail. The project is currently stalled as it faces appeal from a group of neighbors organized by well-known activist Chris Otten.
