A rendering of Parcel L.
On Tuesday, Forest City Washington filed the planned unit development for Parcel L2 at The Yards that could include 285 residences, a hotel and a good deal of retail. The 69,283 square-foot parcel is a block from the Anacostia Riverfront at Third and Water Street SE (map)
Designed by Studios Architecture, the development team plans to construct a 110 foot-tall, U-shaped mixed-use building with up to 285 residential units atop roughly 18,000 square feet of ground-floor retail. A hotel with up to 210 rooms over 4,800 square feet of retail will be added to the northern portion of the site at a later date.

Both buildings will share two levels of underground parking totaling 270 spaces — at a site where no parking is required. There will also be 109 permanent and 24 temporary bicycle parking spaces.
The building’s design, with a concrete skin at its outermost facade along Third and Water, is meant to evoke both the Foundry building and the industrial building which was on the site prior to being demolished. The remainder of the building will be glass and metal panels articulated in a stepped pattern.
The General Services Administration awarded master development rights of the 48-acre former Washington Navy Yard annex to Forest City Washington, which has overseen the multi-phase redevelopment of the site. Parcel L is one of the last development sites in the pipeline.
As UrbanTurf reported last month, construction is slated to begin next year if everything progresses as expected.
