The 691-unit mixed-use development that Boundary Companies and JBG have in the works near the intersection of New York and Florida avenues NE received approval for a set down on Tuesday night, which means that it will move forward for further review by the Zoning Commission.

The project’s nearly 700 units would spread throughout four buildings on a site once used as an industrial train yard at 1611-1619 Eckington Place NE and 1500 Harry Thomas Way NE (map). The project architect is Eric Colbert & Associates.

More than half of the units will be aimed at singles or couples, though JBG and the Boundary Companies are also including larger units in the project. Between the four buildings, the development will have 49 studios, 126 junior one-beds, 229 one-bedrooms, 190 two-bedrooms, 21 three-bedrooms and 76 multi-level units, each with two or three bedrooms.

The project would include about 50,000 square feet of retail space spread between two of the four buildings, as well as 292 parking spaces. The largest of the buildings, called Flower Center North, would rise 110 feet and include most of the project’s retail. The other buildings in the project top out at 75 feet.
