New Renderings For 220-Unit Navy Yard Project, Delivery Slated for 2016

by UrbanTurf Staff


New renderings have been released for the 220-unit rental project that is moving forward at 82 Eye Street SE (map) in Navy Yard, and the developer tells UrbanTurf that the delivery date for the development has been moved up to late 2016.


Greystar Real Estate Partners and RCP Development are partnering on the 13-story building, the site for which they acquired last year. The project architect is R2L:Architects. Steve Etminani of RCP Development told UrbanTurf that the new building will have 5,500 square feet of retail that could be divided among three users.

“One of the highest priorities that I heard from residents when I was commissioner was for Navy Yard to develop into the kind of place where all amenities – whether retail, schools, or high quality public spaces – are within easy walking distance,” former ANC 6D Commissioner David Garber said. “Including retail at this project is a nice move for a developer who wasn’t required to do that, but saw the incoming Whole Foods across the street as an anchor, and listened when they heard that more retail space was desired by neighbors in the surrounding blocks.”

    Meh.  It’s a little hard to get excited about another project that architecturally is the residential equivalent of a “K Street box.” 

    A few little massing moves provide a touch of life, but they appear to be purely architectural gymnastics, with no apparent relationship to solar exposure, better/worse views, or context (yes there is a context, even among the vacant lots).  Such formalism might be okay if the results seem compelling, but I’m not seeing anything that rises above “okay.”  (Nor anything that sinks below “mildly disappointing.”  I suppose that’s a modest accomplishment nowadays, but it’s not exactly a triumph.) 

    Possibly the facades relate to the room uses within, which would be a decent start. Perhaps there are careful details that get lost in the full-building scale of these renderings.  Let’s hope.  And the retail seems barely noteworthy financially—are the 1st-floor apartment units it offsets actually in demand?—and architecturally it’s a non-event, at least in these renderings.
