New Apartments at 1333 M Street SE Proposed

Developer Eric Siegel of the Cohen Companies and Cohen Siegel Investors has proposed building an apartment complex at 1333 M St. SE. The project will be a Planned Unit Development, meaning it will receive some zoning relief in exchange for providing amenities and benefits to its neighborhood. ANC 6B has asked Siegel to build more affordable housing than the city’s inclusionary zoning laws require, and many PUDs also provide extra bike racks, benches, and street clean up.

11th Street Bridge Project Completion, Southeast Freeway Reopening

Jon Whitney, a representative from the District Department of Transportation, says that the 11th Street Bridge project is nearly complete—11th Street SE is paved and the turn lane at 11th and M SE will be finished in November. Accordingly, DDOT expects to connect Barney Circle to 11th Street by reopening the Southeast Freeway by 2014’s end.
