While the redevelopment of the McMillan Sand Filtration site at Michigan Avenue and North Capitol Streets NW (map) remains on hold, last week, the Commission of Fine Arts (CFA) held a final review of the design for the community center planned for the site.
The layout of the community center will be partially below-grade, and it would have a vegetated roof and louvered sun shade overhang. The lower level will have a pool, fitness room, and lockers, while there will be a gallery and a multipurpose room upstairs, along with a mezzanine overlooking the pool below.
The Zoning Commission approved the first iteration of a redevelopment for the McMillan site in 2014, proposing nearly 700 townhouses and apartments, medical office buildings, retail, a grocery store, and eight acres of open space; the project has been on hold due to appeals since 2016. CFA approved the landscape design in June.
