McMillan’s Planned Park May Start Construction in 2016

by Shilpi Paul

Last Thursday, UrbanTurf published renderings of the park planned for the eventual redevelopment of the McMillan Sand Filtration site. On Sunday, Scott Roberts reported that construction may start by 2016.

Vision McMillan Partners recently revamped their plans for the long-awaited redevelopment, and have been attending various ANC and community meetings to share the new plans. Last week, we reported on the impressive rendering of the new park, which would be located between 1st Street NW and North Capitol Street NW, just north of Channing Street.

Now, there is a projected timeline. According to Roberts, Vision McMillan Partners told ANC 5A last week that they hope to start construction on the park, townhouses and retail by 2016, and the healthcare offices by 2017. Additionally, new streets will be created to run through the project. Evarts Street NW, Middle Street NW and Half Street NW can be seen on the plan below.

    To be utterly obtuse and shamlessly self-promotional, I think the McMillan site AS IS needs an interpreter worthy of its historical context as well as its grandeur as a kind of neo-ruin. For this project-to-be, I'm officially throwing my hat into the ring. I would encourage everyone to go to my website at www.brettbusang.com and look around. While I don't go around thinking this all the time, I've probably created the most distinctive portfolio of a DC that is off the tourist's radar, but is intimately familiar to those of us who live in its neighborhoods, shop in its stores, and interact with other people who are just trying to get along.
