Large Mixed-Use Development Coming to Congress Heights Metro: Figure 1

In keeping with the trend of increased development in Ward 8, a planned unit development (PUD) was just submitted for a 446,000-square-foot office and residential project at the Congress Heights Metro station (map), reported the Washington Business Journal late Tuesday.

Developers CityPartners and Sanford Capital plan to build a 236,000-square foot office building and a 205 to 215-unit apartment building at the site, in the hopes for serving as an “anchor for further economic and civic development of the Congress Heights neighborhood,” reported the Business Journal. A 6,000-square foot public plaza is part of the PUD design.

As we’ve reported in the past, individual investors have been sweeping in buying up homes in Congress Heights and nearby Anacostia, and the redevelopment of St. Elizabeth’s, adjacent to this site, has been picking up speed.

We’ll keep you updated as the PUD moves through the various approvals necessary before construction begins.
