The Stacks, Brooklyn Bowling and a Vermeer: The 5 Developments on the Boards for Buzzard Point
The new development keeps humming along in DC's Buzzard Point.
Environmental cleanup will be an ongoing mitigating factor as the five developments in the works move forward, due to the area's history of heavy industrial use. Another potential factor that could be a game-changer for the neighborhood is a concept for a potential Metrorail line extension that could include a stop at Buzzard Point.
Below, UrbanTurf takes a look at the latest happenings in the Buzzard Point residential pipeline. If we missed a project, just shoot us an email editor(at)urbanturf.com.

There will also be 264 below-grade parking spaces and 145 long-term bicycle spaces.

The developer will also create a public plaza along South Capitol Street.
The second phase of the project may include the first full-service grocery store in Buzzard Point. MRP Realty and FRP round out the development team; SK+I Architecture is the designer and Oculus is the landscape architect.
