A 558-unit residential development that will be built in two phases is on the boards for the site of the McDonalds in Navy Yard.

Plans for the development at 2 Eye Street SE (map) were filed with the Board of Zoning Adjustment on Tuesday. The development team of Crescent Communities and RCP Development are working with SK+I Architectural Design Group on the planned development.

In addition to two phases of 558 total residential units, the project will have retail and 143 parking spaces. The proposed development site appears to still be owned by McDonalds, and UrbanTurf has reached out to a representative for the development to find out when the sale will be finalized.

    Most important question: Will the McDonald's be incorporated into the retail component of the project?

    I wondered how long it'd take for this site to be developed. I guess the lower revenue at McDonalds is forcing them to sell off valuable land. The design, while not stellar, is at least somewhat unique.

    @Brett. That's a good looking building to me. I like the glass at the front facing street.

    Brett - really? A 'lower revenue' stream is forcing one of the world's largest company's to 'sell off' valuable land? You don't think landowning people or companies see when an opportunity to realize a large profit on land they own and that creates and business opportunity for them? Or is it only because of snarky attitudes that some think that someone or firm 'must be doing such and such because they do such and such that I don't approve of' . . . Again - Really?

    @EckingtonNEDC I never said it didn't look good. Just nothing to write home about. @DC no vote & taxed res Yes, really. The McDonald's reference was a little more based on facts as opposed to your feelings. You know, the fact that it owns over $16-18 billion in real estate and has not developed valuable properties like the more valuable one at 13th and New York Avenue NW.
