The land disposition needed to clear the way for the redevelopment of 965 Florida Ave. NW, the future home of a mixed-use development to include a Whole Foods grocery, was approved by the DC Council this week. The project site was an unused District government parking lot with a small abandoned building.

The project–a collaboration between MRP Realty and Ellis Development Group–will bring 350+ residential units of which 30% will be affordable to residents earning 30% or less than the area’s median income. The project will also include a 370,000 square foot mixed-use development to include 50,000 square feet of ground-floor retail.

The Whole Foods will take up about 40,000 square-feet at the new development. No target opening date has been set.

The developers agreed to prepare and submit to the Zoning Commission an application for a planned unit development (PUD) within 120 days of the land disposition approval.
