Stanton/Eastbanc Unveils New Drawings, Initiates Marketing Plan
by Larry Janezich
Hine project developer Stanton/Eastbanc has unveiled architect Amy Weinstein’s new drawings changing design elements of the Hine Redevelopment in response to concerns raised by the Historic Preservation Review Board (HPRB). The Board will hold a hearing to review the new plans – possibly in April. The project is currently working its way through the PUD process to change the zoning to accommodate the project’s greater height and density. That process will conclude with a series of hearings before DC’s Zoning Commission, likely in June.
Because of the size of the images on the website make assessing the degree of change difficult to assess. The drawing can be viewed here:
Stanton/Eastbanc has given a face lift to their website which initiates a marketing plan and solicits expression of interest from potential residential, retail, and commercial interest. The site reveals that the residences will comprise studios, one bedrooms, one bedrooms plus den, two bedrooms, two bedrooms plus den, three bedrooms, and penthouses in a price range from $500,000 to $3,000,000. Potential buyers are asked to register their interest in amenities, including a business center, conference room, private party room, exercise room, and rooftop pool.

The website also list new additions to the Stanton/Eastbanc development team. In addition to previous associates Dantes Partners (counselors on affordable housing), and Esocoff Associates (architect), the site list AutoPark, Inc., the Jarvis Company (government relations, permit acquisition, and zoning counseling); and L.S. Caldwell & Associates (contracting and employment compliance).
