Navy Yard continues to be one of the busiest development neighborhoods in DC, with nearly 3,000 residential units in the pipeline.
Below, UrbanTurf takes a look at some of the largest developments planned for the area. If we missed a sizable project, just shoot us an email at editor(at)urbanturf.com.
1 K Street
WC Smith recently filed plans with DC for a new 13-story, 352-unit apartment building at 1 K Street SW (map). The building, designed by WDG Architecture, will front South Capitol Street and sit a few blocks north of Nationals Park. The K Street site is just south of the Capitol Skyline hotel, and is currently vacant except for a handful of parking spaces and an abandoned pool.
The top and bottom of the new project will be devoted to building amenity spaces. The penthouse level will include outdoor terraces and lounge areas, while the western portion of the roof will have a dog park and play area. A swimming pool and pool deck will be located on the upper penthouse level. A two-story jewel box lobby on South Capitol Street will open to a pair of courtyards, as well as amenity space that will feature coworking areas, a lounge, a fitness area, and an amenity that UrbanTurf hasn't seen before: a podcast/piano studio.
The Ruben Companies has plans in the works for a 248-unit apartment building at 1100 South Capitol Street SE (map) just north of Nationals Park and adjacent to St. Vincent de Paul church. The 130-foot tall building is designed by Eric Colbert & Associates and Robert A.M. Stern Architects. The building will have 162 parking spaces, as well as a courtyard with various outdoor "rooms", and a rooftop pool.
The second phase of The Yards development is continuing apace to deliver an additional ten buildings with more than 1,200 residential units, 1.8 million square feet of office space, and over 43,000 square feet of open space along the waterfront. Helmed by Brookfield Properties, the six-block development is bisected by a curbless, multi-modal street dubbed Yards Place.
The remaining residential projects already on the boards include:
Parcel H will be a 130 foot-tall, 478-unit building on the southeast corner of First and N Streets SE (map). The development, which will also include 26,570 square feet of retail, is expected to carry the co-livingesque Urby brand. Ironstate Development is a partner on the building.
All of the apartments would be partially-furnished, and 20% of the units would be for households earning up to 50% of area median income (AMI). The ground floor retail would include a "publicly-accessible" café amenity and central courtyard. The development would also include 249 parking spaces across two below-grade levels. WDG Architecture is the designer.
Work continues for the building at Parcel I at N Street and Yards Place SE (map). The development will deliver 379 apartments (20% affordable to households earning up to 50% of AMI) above 16,000 square feet of retail. Amenities will include co-working spaces, a rooftop pool terrace, and a double-height fitness center bridge. Perkins Eastman is the architect. The development could deliver in the fall.
- G1 and G2
The development for four parcels near First Street and N Place SE (map) at The Yards from Brookfield Properties and the Menkiti Group will deliver 671 residential units across two buildings, 40,000-49,000 square feet of retail, and a large waterfront park. The two new residential buildings are Building G1, designed by STUDIOS Architecture, which will deliver 428 units above up to 25,000 square feet of retail, along with 130-240 parking spaces, and Building G2, designed by Hickok Cole, will deliver 243 units above 24,000 square feet of retail, along with 108 parking spaces.
The centerpiece of the new plan will be a larger and more activated Diamond Teague Park along the river, which will host concerts, exercise classes and other free public events. The park will have a stage-like pavilion and an area with stone seating that provides direct access to the Anacostia Waterfront, termed the "Get Down".
Felice Development Group and Fields-Grade Development have plans in the works for the three acre site at 1333 M Street SE (map) that include 900 residential units with 44,100 square feet of retail across two phases. A planned unit development for this proposal was originally filed in March 2020; the development team filed for a two-year extension of the PUD approval at the end of 2022.
The first phase is anticipated to deliver two "towers" connected by a bridge: the East tower would have 516 units above 32,217 square feet of retail, and the West tower would have 307 units above 9,907 square feet of retail. The second phase will deliver another 97 units above 1,904 square feet of retail. Twelve percent of the units will be affordable to households earning up to 50% and 60% of AMI.
The commercial space is expected to include a food hall-style market, and the development will also deliver a pedestrian promenade, amphitheater-style terracing, and a traffic circle at Water and M Streets. GTM Architects is the building architect and Parker Rodriguez is the landscape architect.
