As the first phase of The Yards continues build-out and plans surface for the second phase, Brookfield Properties is sharing the first views of the pedestrian-friendly street that will bisect the Anacostia Riverfront development.
Yards Place will be a curbless, cobblestone street running between Navy Yard Metro and Diamond Teague park on the waterfront. The street will be multi-modal and pedestrian-friendly and will span the six blocks of Phase II, just west of New Jersey Avenue and continuing south to the river.
The new street will be delivered as part of the second phase of The Yards, which will include 10 new buildings with another roughly 1,260 residential units, 1.8 million square feet of office space, 150,000 square feet of retail, and 43,000 square feet of park space along the waterfront. Architects will include Studios, Selldorf, Leong Leong, and SHoP. The Chemonics office building will be the first to deliver in the second phase.
“We’re excited for these new additions to the neighborhood and to continue the tradition of our community-wide events and activations in our many open-air public spaces," Toby Millman, Senior Vice President of Development for Brookfield Properties, said in a statement. "Brookfield is building off of the huge success of Phase I of The Yards to create a distinctly 21st-century mixed-use neighborhood.”
