There are new conceptual images of a massive redevelopment adjacent to Union Station that has been 20 years in the making.
Developer Akridge released the images of the planned Burnham Place development as part of an informational presentation before the U.S. Commission of Fine Arts today.
The development across 15 acres could result in a 12-building development with three million square feet of mixed-use above the station's railyard, delivering over 1,300 residential units, office space and retail, hotels, and public plazas and a central space that bisects the new development. It would sit between First Street and G Place NE (map) and the historic Railway Express Building at 900 2nd Street NE (map). Shalom Baranes is the project architect.
It has been a long road for Burnham Place, which is named for Union Station designer Daniel Burnham. Akridge won the air rights back in 2002 and then purchased those rights in 2006, but there have been a series of stops and starts as far as its progress over the last 20 years. Burnham Place moving forward is contingent upon the redevelopment of Union Station, which The Washington Post wrote about today.
