U Street Plans For Museum and Performing Arts Center Shaky



Quote:
Earlier this month, former Mayor Vincent Gray picked Sorg Architects and Roadside Development to team up for the Grimke School project, but after launching a news release on the mayoral website announcing the team, it was deleted. Now, since the proposal for the project is under Mayor Muriel Bowser's review for approval, it could mean that the project may or may not happen. The proposed plan for the space are for it to house the African-American Civil War museum as well as the performance groups, Step Afrika!, CityDance, Dance USA, and Imagination Stage. As reported by The Washington Post, the building will feature a black box theater, rehearsal space, and classrooms. The developers are also planning on constructing townhouses, a 30-unit condo building, and 3,500-square-feet of retail on U Street.

See What to Expect From a Brand New New Carrollton



Quote:
Plans are in the works to completely revitalize New Carrollton with 2.7 million-square-feet of construction. This development has the potential to be Prince George's County's largest development since National Harbor. Recently, the real estate committee of Metro's board of directors approved the outline for the development with construction set to begin 2016. The development will alter 41 acres around the New Carrollton Metro Station with 1,370 residential units, 1.1 million-square-feet of office space, 150,000-square-feet of retail space, and 150,000-square-feet of hotel space. The first phase will begin construction on a four- to six-story apartment building with 260 units and 13,000-square-feet of retail.

Speaking of U Street, Rite-Aid is moving into a temporary location for the redevelopment of 1300 U.

Cranes on H Street and the streetcar...took this a week or so ago. It's probably the most active development corridor in the District (there are plenty of developments not visible in the photo) along with Navy Yard, having surpassed 14th due to its depletion of available lots for redevelopment.

Akridge and RTC Partnership Announce Plan for Iconic New Office Tower at Reston Town Center



Quote:
WASHINGTON, Feb. 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Akridge and RTC Partnership announced a joint venture to develop 1760 Reston Parkway, a $210 million, trophy-class, office tower in the heart of Reston Town Center. The approximately 420,000 square foot building will climb 330 feet, nearly 115 feet higher than the next tallest building in Reston Town Center. This will afford 1760 Reston Parkway unparalleled, panoramic views extending from the Blue Ridge Mountains to downtown Washington, DC.

RTC Partnership's Rick Whealen originally acquired the property in 2005 and guided 1760 Reston Parkway through the entitlement process. He retained Mike Shuler of Avison Young to structure a joint venture with a top office developer, leading to the joint venture with Akridge, a full-service commercial real estate company that has been investing in the DC area for over 40 years.

Designed by Thomas Dinneny of Polleo Group in Reston Virginia, 1760 Reston Parkway will redefine Reston's landscape. The office tower will include state-of-the-art building systems, feature a large rooftop plaza, and target LEED Gold certification. Its breathtaking panoramic views will be the landmark structure's most notable feature and will be further enhanced by the floor-to-ceiling vision glass and 9.5 foot ceiling heights.

The building will offer an easily accessible location with the abundant amenities of Reston Town Center, the most desirable office submarket in Northern Virginia. 1760 Reston Parkway will be just 10 minutes east of the Washington Dulles International Airport and about 30 minutes west of Washington DC. Unique to Reston Town Center, 1760 Reston Parkway will have dedicated parking, with a parking ratio of three spaces per every 1,000 SF. Reston Town Center offers a unique outdoor venue with more than 60 retail shops, 30 restaurants, a multi-screen movie cinema, and the Hyatt Regency Hotel.

Tried to get a good shot of the emerging high-rise cluster forming in Tysons Corner from the Metro...the angle makes it somewhat difficult. The first crane just went up and is part of the larger Scotts Run Station South development by Cityline.



Scotts Run Station South (centred around McLean station, labelled here by its provisional name of Tysons East during construction):

Rosslyn Air Rights Development Challenging, But Worth It



Quote:
Plans are in the works to construct reinforced decking over Interstate 66 with up to 2.5 million-square-feet of office, residential, and retail developments. The developments would be located in Rosslyn and atop the East Falls Church Metro station, according to Washington Business Journal. The hope for the air rights development is for it to create new jobs, a revenue stream for future transportation projects, and an increase in the tax base. After a yearlong air rights review of I-66, Boston-based architecture, planning, and preservation firm Good Clancy reported that the development could actually harm any efforts to revitalize the neighborhood's core.

According to Good Clancy's study, the development may "thwart [the] County's efforts to revitalize and reinvest in central Rosslyn." While serving as a consultant for Arlington's Realize Rosslyn sector plan, Good Clancy's study also reported that it could take at least 20 years to justify the expenses for the project and that rents will need to increase or decrease by 13 to 16 percent. Despite the challenges and costs of the project, the study also reports that the air rights development may actually be worth it. According to the study, "building over I-66 could be seen as growth boundary, to expand into the future."

[...]



Quote:
Developer JBG submitted massing studies and renderings that have been described as being "the simplest, fastest, and least expensive approach" to the development. The developer suggests reinforcing and repurposing two existing 75,000-square-foot platforms over I-66. Both platforms could support two 300,000-square-foot towers each, but JBG believes the most feasible plan would be to construct three 300,000-square-foot residential towers, one 300,000-square-foot office tower, and one 20,000-square-feet of integrated retail, as reported by Washington Business Journal. To the east of Lynn Street and the west of Nash Street, two platforms could also be constructed to support a 125,000-square-foot hotel and a 300,000-square-foot residential development .

Two 20-Story Towers and 450 Residential Units For Arlington



Quote:
A vacant office building in Pentagon City was approved to be redeveloped into two 20-story towers. One tower will hold 150 condo units, and the second tower will hold 300 rental units. The development is named The Altaire and will be located at 400 Army Navy Drive. The development will be certified LEED Gold and will feature floor-to-ceiling glass facades, balconies, and amenities like a swimming pool, fitness center, and rooftop terrace. Old South Eads Street will be removed during construction to become a pedestrian walk. Construction will begin later this year with an expected completion by the second quarter of 2018.

Behold, The Finished Designs For Robinson Terminal North In Alexandria



Quote:
The previous designs for Robinson Terminal North were described as "frenetically and distractingly random" and "lacking the orderly quality ... of Alexandria." Now, they're being compared to the Sydney Opera House. While the original renderings featured wood fins and mullions, the new renderings are focused on glass and steel. According to the Washington Business Journal, plans for the development include a two-story pavilion with a faceted window wall system and a metal slab edge cover. Other design features will include recessed bays, glass guardrails, fritted glass, and floor-to-floor glazing. The two-building development will be located on 500 and 501 Union Street between Founders and Oronoco Bay Parks. The buildings will be referred to as East Building and West Building, with the former having four stories for residential and retail use and the latter having six stories for residential, retail, and hotel use.

JBG acquires majority of Akridge's Half Street project by Nationals Park


Akridge at Half Street

Quote:
D.C. developer Akridge has sold the majority of its Half Street parcel across from Nationals Park to The JBG Cos., which is expected to redevelop the site with two new residential buildings and a large amount of what one executive called "dramatic" retail.

The site is currently home to the Fairgrounds, a popular outdoor hangout before and after Nationals games.

The deal was recorded Thursday, five months after Akridge launched a formal search for a new equity investor in the project. The developer decided to go another route, however, selling the southern two-thirds of the Half Street lot outright for $45 million to one of Washington's most prolific developers.

[...]

Akridge at Half Street, as it was known, is a proposed mixed-use development running the length of the west side of Half Street between M and N streets SE, steps from Nationals Park. It was, until recently, slated to include two office buildings totaling 370,000 square feet and a 280-unit residential building, in addition to new retail.

The development program has shifted to reflect the changing Capitol Riverfront market, Gooch said. It will likely now include two residential buildings (to be developed by JBG), "dramatic retail" and an office building, to be constructed on the northern third of the lot, facing M Street. Akridge is under contract to recapitalize the northern third of Half Street, Gooch said, but the deal has not closed.

I wish there was a way to save some sort of fairgrounds type atmosphere. That was a pretty unique place they had there, would be a shame for it to disappear completely.

I like that it's not a typical box that you'd see in most DC developments trying to max out FAR. That area's been languishing for too long and I'm glad that the Navy Yard building boom is now giving it some newfound hope.
