UrbanTurf has looked at the development on tap for a number of neighborhoods around the city over the last two years, but one area of development has yet to be covered.

The Yards is a 42-acre development from Forest City that is being constructed along the banks of the Anacostia River near Nationals Park. When complete, The Yards will consist of approximately 25 buildings with 1.8 million square feet of office space, 3,400 residential units, 400,000 square feet of retail and restaurants, and six acres of park land and green space.

While full buildout will likely take at least another ten years, Forest City is one the verge of completing the fifth building for the site. Below is a rundown of completed projects at The Yards, as well as some that are on the boards.

Yards Park

Completed in 2010, Yards Park consists of park space, the canal basin, water features, a pedestrian bridge and boardwalk, and terraced lawn spaces. For five years, it has been one of the biggest attractions in The Yards development.


A Few Other Recent Developments

  • Construction on a 50-slip marina is scheduled to begin this month.
  • District Winery will open in a 16,000 square-foot space in a new building near the Lumber Shed. Plans are for the winery to be open by 2017.
