DC Water plans to build a new headquarters on an industrial site in Navy Yard, joining several other projects on the boards for the area.
The authority filed a planned-unit development with the Zoning Commission on Monday proposing the building they see as “a bold, innovative statement on the Anacostia River shoreline.” The project, just southwest of the site of the Main Sewerage Pumping Station at 125 O Street SE (map), would be built on top of a second, smaller, contemporary pumping station at O Street SE. The addition would rise to a maximum height of 100 feet.
SmithGroup JJR is the architect on the proposed project, which would be built to exceed LEED Platinum standards.

The site was one of the last pieces of land not slated for redevelopment between the Navy Yard complex and Nationals Park. All told more than 1,000 units plus retail and commercial space are planned for the stretch of riverfront, with the Forest City development to the north, the Florida Rock development to the southwest and Grosvenor Americas’ F1rst project closest to Nationals Park.
Because of its proximity to Metro, DC Water proposes building the site with just 21 parking spaces, far fewer than the 69-75 zoning laws would require.
