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 2022. Enjoy.
For years, the Mazza Gallerie mall on Wisconsin Avenue in DC's Friendship Heights neighborhood (map) was essentially empty. As retailers decamped, the surrounding community wondered what the future held for the building.
In July, we found out.
Developer Tishman Speyer presented plans to reimagine the property as a 7-story, 325-unit apartment project with 25,000 square feet of retail along Wisconsin Avenue that could feature food and beverage establishments as well as fitness operations.
The design of the redevelopment, from Danish architect 3XN, will include an undulating facade along Wisconsin Avenue, and the units will range from studios to two-story townhouses to terrace penthouses. The project will have a number of internal courtyards for residents, and approximately 40 of the units will be inclusionary zoning (IZ). Willard Retail is advising on the retail component of the redevelopment.
Tishman Speyer acquired the mall in 2021 and some light construction has already started at the site. UrbanTurf will continue to monitor updates about the project in 2023.
