Bladensburg Road is ripe for development as property values in neighboring areas rise and developers/businesses seek new locations. As project in Ivy City and H Street continue to take shape, lower income individuals and families find themselves moving east, leading to a higher demand for affordable housing there and increasing pressure for higher density development.

As per the architecture firm Torti Gallas, which was engaged to provide the owner a massing study in September 2020, there is 56,000 sf FAR of as-of-right development potential, and up to 117,600 sf (4.2 FAR) once re-zoned to MU-5 (as projected by the DC Future Land Use Map which shows future uses to be a mix of Medium Density Residential and Moderate Density Commercial).
The site is a 20-minute drive to Union Station (via Ivy City, NoMa and Union Market) and is short drive to the National Arboretum, the Shops at Dakota Crossing and the Maryland/DC line. Located on Bladensburg Road NE, the site is on the B2 and H6 bus lines, providing access to Downtown DC and other major destinations.
