Two months after a second-stage planned unit development (PUD) was filed, one of the largest  developments coming to The Yards will go before the DC Zoning Commission. 

The proposal is for four parcels near First Street and N Place SE (map) and consists of 671 residential units, 40,000-49,000 square feet of retail, and a large waterfront park. Brookfield Properties and the Menkiti Group are the developers. The PUD will go before the commission on Thursday.

The centerpiece of the new plan is a larger and more activated Diamond Teague Park along the river, which will host concerts, exercise classes and other free public events. The park will have a stage-like pavilion and an area with stone seating that provides direct access to the Anacostia Waterfront, termed the "Get Down".
