Community Meeting for Watkins Alley PUD Project

Following close on the heels of last week's community meeting on the 1401 Penn Ave SE development, on Monday, March 23rd at 7pm OPal is holding an outreach meeting at the Hill Center about their planned project on the 1300 block of E St SE. The project, which OPal is calling Watkins Alley, is Planned Unit Development (PUD) project, because the site is currently zoned for light industrial use.

OPal's preliminary plans for the site, which they released in January, include a combination of rowhomes, flats, and lofts. At the upcoming meeting OPal will review their current plans, walk through the rough project timeline, and invite feedback from the community. As with the 1401 Penn PUD, this project will include a benefits and amenities package for the neighborhood, and this meeting is a good opportunity to begin that conversation.
