Vertical development is underway in the lot in front of Union Market, as LCOR is roughly lmidway through construction on one of Union Market's many developments (see also Signal House, Ledger, Press House, Market Terminal). The completed project will offer 280 apartment units directly opposite Union Market's food hall on the far side of the parking lot, and two levels of below grade parking. The project was one of the many appealed and delayed by activist groups seeking to block development throughout Washington D.C. The ground floor will feature 20,000 s.f. of retail, which will include the Little Tavern, a historic chain of restaurants based in DC dating back to the 1920's. LCOR previously completed the Edison apartment building one block away, which houses Trader Joe's.
