In 2016, the plans to redevelop the McMillan Reservoir and Sand Filtration Site were about to get started. However, an appellate court decision put a halt to the project later that year, and it has been stuck in limbo ever since.
As the controversial redevelopment plan for the site remains under appeal, the Zoning Commission unanimously approved a two-year extension for the approved planned-unit development earlier this week.
Vision McMillan Partners (VMP) plans to develop the 25-acre industrial site between North Capitol and First Streets and Michigan Avenue and Channing Street NW (map) into 146 townhouses, 531 apartments, an eight-acre park, a community center, medical office buildings, and retail including a grocery store. VMP is made up of Jair Lynch Real Estate Partners, EYA, Trammell Crow, and architects MV+A Architects, Shalom Baranes and Perkins Eastman.
With the extension approval, all portions of the PUD remain valid until March 2021, or for two years from the conclusion of the appeals.
Correction: MV+A Architects was previously omitted from the article; the oversight has since been corrected. The extension will also be valid for two years following conclusion of ongoing appeals.
