700 Units, 1.6 Million Square Feet of Office: Massive Mixed-Use Project Planned For Poplar Point
An aerial shot of the proposed development.
Redbrick Partners has filed plans for a massive, five-building mixed-use project for a section of Poplar Point in Ward 8.
The plans for the site, located on each side of Howard Road SE and in between Interstate 295 and South Capitol Street SE (map), will include five buildings totaling 680 to 700 residential units, 1.6 million square feet of office space, and 45,300 square feet of of retail. There will be two levels of underground parking underneath all the buildings, with a total of 930 parking spaces. There will also be 541 long-term bicycle parking spaces and 90 short term spaces.

The construction would occur in three phases with a residential building (Building C) built in the first phase, two office buildings (D and E) constructed in the second phase, and an office building and residential building (A and B) built in the final phase. HOK is the project architect.
After several meetings with city agencies and the community, the developer decided to add more three-bedroom affordable units to the plans, and will be making improvements to the nearby Anacostia Metro station and the streetscape surrounding the project site, which it purchased back in 2013.
While Redbrick likely has a number of potential tenants in mind for the massive amount of office space at the development, there is one tenant that is at the top of the list: the Department of Labor. The Washington Business Journal reported earlier this month that Redbrick is one of several developers vying to building the Department’s new headquarters which could be upwards of 1.4 million square feet.
