Eight "Stadium Lofts" Planned For Buzzard Point: Figure 1

A new 8-unit development has been proposed for Buzzard Point, the latest project that speaks to the growing interest from developers in the SW neighborhood.

Stadium District Lofts will be an 8-unit, infill development at 1542 First Street SW (map), according to documents filed with the Zoning Commission. The four-story building will house a mix of one, two and three-bedroom units, and will not have retail. The developer is looking for a variance from providing three on-site parking spaces.

“Centered in the middle of Buzzard Point, Stadium District Lofts will likely be one of the first ‘standard setting’ smaller infill developments in sync with the Buzzard Point Vision Framework & Implementation Plan (Public Draft) as it provides a transition from the higher density development south of Q Street SW to the existing lower R-4 Density Residential developments to the north,” the developer wrote to the Commission.

Buzzard Point has been a popular area for development news of late. Last week, news came of the first mixed-use development on the boards for the area, a 100-unit residential project from Capital City Real Estate.

    With Capitol Cities announced Purchase of the Marina Place project last month, it sounds as though The DC Stadium District is truly going to expand south and southwest into the Buzzard Point neighborhood finally! With anticipated ground breaking on the DC United Stadium infrastructure along with the new Pepco Power Station block between Q and R and 1st and 2nd SW it wont be long until the South Capitol and Potomac Avenue infrastructure rebuilds get started as well. Another key step will be when the Q Street Hostel starts construction on their project between 1st and 2nd street north of Q St--developed by the Carr Family of Willard Hotel Fame. I look forward to marching sw on Potomac Avenue with DC United fans as they caravan from the Navy Yard Metro Station to the DCUnited Stadium on Game Days, it is going to be spectacular with the river on the left and the Capitol on the right walking and enjoying the spectacular new promenade that Potomac Avenue is being turned into.

    It's so nice to see this beautiful city being developed and redeveloped with projects that are so appealing to the nation's capital. Our structured finance firm resides here and loves to see what is going on with all of these projects.
