Washington Business Journal: Level 2 envisions bringing flavor of New York’s Meatpacking District to Union Market area

Level 2 Development is planning to develop a 315-unit mixed-use apartment project near Union Market that it hopes will pay homage to New York’s Meatpacking District at a gateway site leading into the District’s NoMa neighborhood.

Level 2, which is also a part of the team working with Edens to remake the 45-acre Union Market, has filed a Planned Unit Development Application with the District to build 315 apartment units and just shy of 8,500 square feet of retail space at 320 Florida Ave. NE. The site currently includes a Burger King and is the last parcel on the east side of Florida before crossing over the railroad tracks and into the neighborhood north of Massachusetts Avenue, known as NoMa.
