a new project in the heart of shaw

Home: Text


MidCity is proud to propose a gorgeously designed, highly amenitized 3 and 4 story residential building in the heart of Shaw.  The new building at 1200 5th Street, as designed by award-winning local architects Torti Gallas, will be seamlessly woven into the existing fabric of the Shaw neighborhood, adding new housing while being sensitive to neighborhood scale. The project will feature a central amenity bar with a rooftop pool and fitness center, as well as top-of-the-line amenities such as two private interior courtyards, ample below grade parking, and a publicly accessible park that can serve as a gathering place for neighbors and residents.

On April 27, 2020, the Zoning Commission voted to approve MidCity's PUD. We anticipate submitting for a building permit by the end of 2020, and hope to begin demolition and construction of the new building by the Summer of 2021.  

On August 2, 2019, the MidCity team filed a PUD application with the Zoning Commission. 

Our team presented at the July 2nd meeting of ANC 6E at the Northwest One Library. 


On June 7, 2019, our team filed a Notice of Intent to file a zoning application to the District of Columbia Zoning Commission for approval of a Planned Unit Development.

On June 4, 2019, the MidCity team held a public community meeting to review its plans for the redevelopment of 1200 5th Street NW. Over 50 people attended this meeting and a productive dialogue took place.
