Directly across from the Navy Yard Metro station and only one block from Nationals Park, there will be a brand new trophy-class office building constructed with street-level retail. Akridge and Brandywine Realty Trust recently partnered together to develop the site at 25 M Street SE for a 275,000-square-foot building with 25,000-square-feet of retail, a 3,000-square-foot fitness facility, and a rooftop terrace with views of Nationals Park. This partnership was announced only four months after Brandywine acquired the three-quarters of an acre parcel of land from Akridge for $20 million. Expect the largest U.S.-based architecture-engineering firm HOK to design the development.
