If you’ve ever wanted to get closer to your wholesale food source for fresh sardines, barbecued kale chips or kimchi, the Edison at Union Market in Northeast Washington may be a home worth considering.

The six-story building, designed by SK+I Architecture and under development by LCOR, will include 178 apartments, 28,000 square feet of ground-level retail space and a below-grade parking garage.

EDENS, the owner, operator and developer of Union Market, will own the retail space in the Edison, at Fourth Street and Florida Avenue NE. The architectural design of the building incorporates the industrial nature of the Union Market district, a 45-acre site that has historically served as the city’s wholesale food district.

EDENS transformed the 47,000-square-foot Union Market into a food and artisanal goods market that attracts shoppers, chefs and diners to the community.

No leasing information about the apartments is available yet.
