The Trinidad Baptist Church site is a large property with frontage on Benning Road, NE and 16th Street, NE. The parcel will at some point become around 300 new residential units once plans are approved. The site is at 1611 Benning Road, NE in Kingman Park and has been delayed since plans were filed two years ago.
The Office of Planning has had the plans on hold since February of 2017. The Valvaere project, developed by Valor Development, would be a prominent, 9 story building with 293 apartments on Benning Road and 8 three-story townhomes on 16th Street, NE. About 7,000 sq. ft. of street level convenience retail is included in the plans along with 108 underground parking spaces. Community gardens and fitness center are on the proposed amenity list.
The church is currently in use as pop-up gallery space hosting a number of art exhibitions.
