I drove past the CSX site today - those buildings are almost on top of 695. It's crazy how close they are.

"The largest development planned for DC's Buzzard Point is starting to take shape.

Akridge, along with partners National Real Estate Advisors and Blue Coast Capital, has filed a Large Tract Review application with DC's Office of Planning that outlines what is envisioned for the nearly 295,000 square-foot site between T and V Streets from First to Second Streets SW.

The documents reveal a massive project that will deliver roughly 2.15 million square feet of mixed-use development, including hotel, office, retail, bars/restaurants, and nearly 2,100 residential units across two buildings..."

The 2 Million Square Feet of Development Proposed for Benning Road and Minnesota Avenue

November 25, 2020
by Nena Perry-Brown
Urban Turf

















“Earlier this year, DC’s Department of General Services (DGS) committed to a 20-year lease off Benning Road and Minnesota Avenue as part of a new development by Cedar Realty. Now, the developer is moving forward with a proposal for the entire project.

Cedar Realty and Trammell Crow have filed a Large Tract Review application with the city's Office of Planning for a project that would replace the East River Park shopping center at 322 40th Street NE (map) and Senator Square Shopping Center on the other side of Minnesota Avenue NE (map) with roughly 1.97 million square feet of mixed-use development.

The "Northeast Heights Town Center" would deliver roughly 241,000 square feet of office space, 130,000 square feet of retail and restaurants, a 70,000 square-foot grocery store, and 1,355 residential units across 13.3 acres. The resulting eight buildings would have a maximum height of 65 feet and would be serviced by 1,248 vehicular parking spaces. Although there is currently a Safeway on the site, it is unlikely that the new grocer will also be a Safeway...”

Interesting color design. I wonder how quickly it will look dated? Or perhaps the unique color design will age well? It's only been around a few years, but I think the unique green color design of the former WaPo redevelopment at 15th & L will prove rather timeless. But that used good materials to complement the interesting design. Not sure if that's the case for this development. I guess only time will tell.

Press Release: More than a bridge: National Park Service completes full rehabilitation of Washington’s ceremonial entrance
For immediate release: December 4, 2020
Quote:
Arlington Memorial Bridge reopens today

WASHINGTON – Today, the National Park Service (NPS) will completely reopen the rehabilitated Arlington Memorial Bridge to drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists. The $227 million rehabilitation project, one of the largest infrastructure projects in NPS history, is a momentous accomplishment for the Department of the Interior and its federal partners that will extend the bridge’s useful life for 75 years.

“The rehabilitation of the Arlington Memorial Bridge honors the sacrifices of our nation’s veterans,” U.S. Secretary of the Interior David L. Bernhardt, said. “The completion of this project marks one of the largest infrastructure projects in National Park Service history, which was done on time and on budget. I hope that all Americans are brought together to remember and honor our veterans every time they cross this bridge into the capital of our nation.”

Rosslyn skyline changes following hotel implosion

Quote:
Sunday morning’s implosion of a former Holiday Inn building in Rosslyn, Virginia, appeared to happen without incident, making way for a new multiple-use development.

The 8 a.m. strategic explosion occurred in the 1900 block of Fort Myer Drive, near Lee Highway.

The 18-story hotel had operated on the Virginia side of the Key Bridge since 1972, but closed earlier this year for a scheduled renovation.

And here is what's replacing it:

Washington Business Journal


"The Donohoe Cos. has picked up a new joint venture partner and landed $174 million in construction financing to push ahead its long-sought redevelopment of a Tenleytown office building once occupied by Fannie Mae.

The developer announced Monday it’s now working with the Denver-based Apartment Investment and Management Co., commonly known as Aimco, on its Upton Place project at 4000 Wisconsin Ave. NW. And that joint venture has also managed to line up some loan funding for the development, working with Eastdil Secured to win financing through Bank OZK of Arkansas..."

The old Fletcher-Johnson school in Marshall Heights will soon get a large mixed-use makeover

By Alex Koma
Washington Business Journal
Dec 23, 2020

"Gragg Cardona Partners will lead a development team to transform the old Fletcher-Johnson school and recreation center in Marshall Heights into a large mixed-use project.

Mayor Muriel Bowser announced Wednesday that the project will include up to 816 new homes over retail, with everything from apartments to for-sale townhomes and condos on the property. Gragg Cardona will partner with the Carding Group, Foundation Housing and H2 Design Build and the Marshall Heights Community Development Organization on the project.

The 15-acre property, located at 4650 Benning Road SE, has seen a variety of proposals for its reuse come and go after the school closed in 2008. It was eyed as everything from a potential charter school site to the home of a new hospital east of the Anacostia River (before the city settled on the St. Elizabeths East campus)."
