Ward 8 is not currently the center of many D.C. development projects, but this proposed office and residential space next to the Congress Heights Metro Station might help to spur growth in the area. These 90 foot buildings proposed by 5914 Square (a partnership between CityPartners and Sanford Capital) would include a 236,000-square-foot office building and a residential building of up to 215 apartments. Both buildings would include retail space on the ground floor and a plaza at the entrance to the metro station. Sanford, one half of the 5914 Square development team, is known for having a lot of properties that look like tiny brick boxes, so this rendering looks like a departure from that.
