A new design is being pitched for the office building planned on Parcel F at The Yards.
Brookfield Properties and Selldorf Architects have begun sharing a prospective design concept for the building that will be west of the future 1 1/2 Street SE between N and Quander Streets (map).
Parcel F was previously planned as two office buildings totaling 315,000 square feet atop a shared retail platform. The new design significantly lowers the massing along N Street to create a "three-story street wall" that further emphasizes the retail along that side of the building. A series of set-backs above will also create south-facing green terraces and allow light into an interior courtyard.
The new office plans are part of the six-block second phase of the 42-acre redevelopment of The Yards, which is expected to deliver another 1,200 residential units, 150,000 square feet of commercial space, and 1.5 million square feet of office.
