Navy Yard boomtown continues:

Quote:
Additional renderings of planned 25 M Street SE office building

With a zoning hearing coming up later this month, developers Brandywine and Akridge have submitted additional materials to the Zoning Commission on their proposed 25 M Street, a 247,000-square-foot office building on the southwest corner of Half and M Streets, SE, currently home to the north end of the Fairgrounds.

There are also now new terraces on the 3rd, 4th, and 9th floors in addition to the roof, and the building will also have about 21,000 square feet of retail space. However, the planned third underground level of parking has been removed, with the building now having 157 spaces on two levels.

Rosslyn Plaza overhaul will take 25 years, but phase 1 includes portion of the esplanade https://t.co/OJ35LyKuHp



Quote:
Before Rosslyn Plaza is approved, a primer on this immense Arlington project

The powerful joint venture behind the 2.5 million-square-foot, 25-year overhaul of Rosslyn Plaza, the largest new development planned for Arlington’s downtown, will finally have its day before the county board.
But even after seven years of review, this Saturday’s vote is just the beginning for Vornado Realty Trust and Gould Property Co. The board will only consider a phased development site plan, which sets out the overall massing, heights, density and layout of the massive project. Each of the proposed five new towers within Rosslyn Plaza will have to undergo final site plan review.

Located on 7.65 acres on the eastern edge of Rosslyn — overlooking Interstate 66, Roosevelt Island and the District — Rosslyn Plaza today includes four mid-rise, aging office properties, the London and Normandy apartment buildings, and the Spectrum Theater. The buildings all sit on a plaza deck, below which are three levels of parking.

The overall project will include 1.8 million square feet of office, 546,487 square feet of residential (550 units), 130,000 square feet of hotel (200 keys), 45,000 square feet of retail and 2,168 parking spaces. It is the largest of the redevelopments proposed for Rosslyn — including JBG's Central Place and Rosslyn Gateway and Monday Properties’ 1401 Wilson and 1400 Key Blvd.— as the Arlington community, the subject of a recent sector plan update, shifts from a circa 1970s concrete canyon to an urban, 24-hour downtown.

Rosslyn Plaza will be a five-phase, 25-year initiative. The first phase, as planned, will be a 600,000-square-foot office tower fronting Wilson Boulevard, North Arlington Ridge Road and North Kent Street. The second phase, immediately to its north, will be a 300-unit residential building. The third is a 609,000-square-foot office building. The fourth will be either a hotel or residential (or a combination) and the fifth office and/or residential.
Ground-floor retail is proposed for all but the final phase.

^ How come the city allows these towers, wouldn't they conflict the height limit?
Or doesn't it apply there for whatever reasons?

AFAIK, the height limit only applies to D.C. proper, which Arlington isn't a part of. There are already highrises in Arlington. I could of course be wrong but I don't know of any height restrictions in Arlington.

There are FAA restrictions because of the nearby Reagan National Airport. Planners in the region are also loathe to allow anything exceeding the Washington Monument's 555 ft. height so the tallest tower in Northern Virginia will only be 470 ft. tall.

To further this, Rosslyn is basically next to the DCA flight path. Normally I'm sceptical of these types of restrictions, but it's well warranted here.

Huge news for NoMa:

1200 3rd Street NE
Use: Mixed-use (650 units, 200 hotel rooms, 50,000 s.f. retail) | Developer: Trammell Crow | Planning



Quote:
High Street Residential, a wholly owned subsidiary of Trammell Crow Co., has partnered with the Dorr family, owner of the Central Armature Works at 1200 Third St. NE, to redevelop the 2.5-acre NoMa site. High Street will oversee the project, while the Dorr clan, which contributed the property to a trust last summer, will play an undefined role.

According to a planned-unit development application filed Tuesday with the D.C. Zoning Commission, High Street will develop a 200-key hotel, two residential towers totaling 650 units (50 affordable), and 50,000 square feet of retail "on a site that was formerly dedicated to motor and apparatus repairs, installation and distribution." The triangular parcel, 760 feet in length, is currently home to a warehouse and surface parking lot.

The entire first level of the project, covering 96 percent of the lot, will contain a podium up to 22-feet high, according to the filings, a structure necessary to ensure each tower built above it will be exposed to daylight. Without it, the retaining wall between the property and the railroad tracks would block sunlight into the buildings.

Atop the podium, from north to south, will be a 450-unit apartment building with a glass and brick facade, a 200-key hotel with a façade of glass and composite concrete panel, and a 200-unit condominium building with a façade of glass and metal panel.

The retail, fronting M Street, Third Street and Florida Avenue, will be located on the first level of the podium. A 6,680-square-foot plaza will cut through the entire width of the site, providing direct access from Third Street NE to a future Metro pedestrian tunnel that will link the community with the NoMa-Gallaudet Metro station on the other side of the tracks. The plaza, according to High Street, will incorporate artwork. Additional open spaces are found throughout the property, while each building will include rooftop amenities.

One of the largest developments in the DC area:

Quote:
Kettler on The Boro: 'First truly urban, authentic development here in Tysons'



Kettler, along with Meridian Group executives, on Monday hosted a ceremonial demolition event (the wrecking ball was quiet on this day) for The Boro, the 4.2 million-square-foot transformation of the 18-acre SAIC campus near the Greensboro Metro station. The first phase of the project alone, at 1.7 million square feet, will roughly match Kettler’s largest project ever.

8301 Greensboro Drive, also known as The Enterprise Building on the SAIC campus in Tysons, is coming down.

The Boro will take over a site bounded by Leesburg Pike, Greensboro Drive and Solutions Drive. While it encompasses the SAIC campus, which Meridian acquired for $185 million over multiple transactions, only one structure on the campus is coming down, The Enterprise Building at 8301 Greensboro Drive.

Rising as high as 32 stories, The Boro's first phase will include a 70,000-square-foot, flagship Whole Foods Market, a 15-screen Showplace Icon Theatre, 80,000 additional square feet of retail centered on a new retail street, 835 apartments, 400,000 square feet of office and a 1-acre park.

Davis Construction, the general contractor, started remediation work (including skin removal) in mid-March. Officials expect 8301 Greensboro to be completely removed in three months. Then the digging begins, likely in September, for the underground garage. The first phase is expected to open in 2018.

Kettler will develop all residential and retail in the two blocks fronting Westpark Drive, though it will have a role in future phases as well.

Great to see that many US cities re-discover urbanism and streetlife like that

Now they only should find a more attractive mix of styles, including new classical architecture and more daring experimental stuff.

More Navy Yard news:

Quote:
NAB HQ and 10 Van residential edging toward summer start dates



If you are wandering by the southeast corner of South Capitol and M Streets next week and are wondering about seeing a bunch of well-dressed VIPs wielding shovels, it's not a new job training program--it'll be a ceremonial groundbreaking for the new headquarters for the National Association of Broadcasters at One M Street SE, being developed by Monument Realty.

NAB's headquarters will be a 120,000-square-foot offering with about 4,800 square feet of ground floor retail, and is expected to open in 2018. NAB and Monument announced the deal in April of 2015, calling it the "culmination of a rigorous search for a location with easier access to Capitol Hill that will allow NAB to improve its advocacy efforts."

Monument also tells me that the current plan is to also start this summer on 10 Van Street, the NAB HQ's 163-unit residential sibling immediately to the south, which you can see here and on my One M/10 Van project page.

Once it gets started, the NAB HQ would be the second office project under construction, joining Skanska's on-spec 99 M a couple of blocks to the east. The 10 Van project will become part of the long list of residential projects currently being built, and will be the second in this block of South Capitol Street, along with JBG's 290-unit rental building at 1244 South Capitol that is expected to be completed in 2017. These will also be the first projects to get underway in 2016, unless the Yards Parcel O condo and rental buildings get started first.

Fairfax County report in link:

Quote:
Fairfax County eyes more mixed-use development near Metro stations, major roads

The Fairfax County planning commission is expected to vote this week on a proposal that would allow more density near Metro stations and in older commercial centers.

The proposal would change zoning requirements to allow denser development in 22 areas spread across Fairfax County. All of the areas are either adjacent to Silver, Orange, Blue or Yellow line stations or in older commercial areas along major roads, like Richmond Highway in the southern area of the county.

​Hines, Hilton break ground on new luxury hotel in CityCenterDC

[IMG]http://***************/view/img/2887391/conrad-washingtondc.jpg[/IMG]

The last Hines Interests LP-owned piece of CityCenterDC is officially underway, with the developer and its partners, Qatari Diar and Hilton Worldwide Holdings Inc. (NYSE: HLT), breaking ground Tuesday on the Conrad Washington and announcing that "Top Chef" alum Bryan Voltaggio will run the main restaurant there. The 360-room luxury hotel, which is named for Hilton’s founder, is expected to open in early 2019.

The hotel is located at the corner of New York Avenue NW and 10th Street NW, adjacent to the only part of CityCenterDC not being developed by Hines: a proposed office building at 900 New York Avenue NW from Gould Property Co. and Oxford Properties Group. Work has not begun on the office building.

The hotel will also include an additional 30,000 square feet of retail space, which we’ve heard from sources will include a Tiffany & Co.
