Metro has picked the mixed-use plan from the team of MRP and CAS Riegler for its Navy Yard Chiller site, the agency announced Wednesday. Akridge and Trammel Crow were also bidding for the site near the Navy Yard Metro (map).

MRP and CAS Riegler’s plan includes about 126 condos above 6,000 square feet of double-height retail, according to a presentation WMATA gave to ANC 6D in April.

The companies also plan to build the 11-story project to LEED Silver standards. According to WMATA’s timeline, the company could start the local entitlement process for the mixed-use building next April, and the agency said Wednesday that construction would begin in 2016.

Trammel Crow wanted to build a slightly smaller building with more units and less retail. Akridge proposed office space. WMATA said at the April meeting that a big question for the agency was revenue.

“Price is very important to us,” said WMATA’s Stan Wall at the ANC meeting this spring. “We want to maximize revenue from this project.”

Also on the list of important factors? Who could get started the soonest.
