It's that time of year again when UrbanTurf reflects on some of the DC area's most interesting real estate topics from the last 12 months. This week, we refresh your memory on some of the best, most intriguing and most peculiar things we came across throughout 2023. Enjoy.
The details of one of the biggest developments that came to light this year was part of a much larger project that has been in the works for some time.
In March, UrbanTurf broke news of the details for the five-building development that will serve as the centerpiece of the St. Elizabeth's campus in Ward 8 (map).
The 650,000 square-foot project, developed by Redbrick LMD and designed by Adjaye Associates and Hickok Cole, will include a 178,000 square-foot office building, a hotel, and residential buildings with upwards of 300 units. At least 150 of the residential units will be affordable to households earning 30-80% of median family income.
There will also be an 80,000 square foot public park, as well as a commercial center with 30,000 square feet of retail, dining opportunities, and a grocer. A portion of the retail will be devoted to incubator space for eight local businesses, and the Jose Andres Group will provide support and guidance to the Chefs-in-Residence program.
The proposed design of the development currently features curvilinear facades above glassy first floor arcades, but that could change as the project goes through the historic review process. Shared roof space will connect the five buildings.
Redbrick was awarded development rights for Parcel 15 in 2019, and a timber retail pavilion has opened at the site which will operate until work starts on the permanent development. UrbanTurf will provide updates as it moves through the historic review process.
