Currently, Washington, D.C.'s Southwest neighborhood Buzzard Point is largely composed of industrial and commercial buildings as well as vacant land. Soon, though, it will feature parks and public spaces as well as an abundance of retail and mixed-income housing options, thanks to the Buzzard Point Vision Framework. Part of this multi-million-square-foot revitalization will include the neighborhood's first mixed-use project, which, according to Washington Business Journal, may be "the start of a Buzzard Point renaissance." D.C.-based developer Capital City Real Estate is planning for this project to be located on a waterfront parcel, bounded by V, First, and Half streets SW. According to Washington Business Journal, the plans include retail and a range of 90 to 107 condos. The delivery of the project is slated for early 2018. The previous owner of the parcel of land, Duane Deason, planned on developing the land for 97 residential units and 1,788-square-feet of retail in 2010, but the high cost of the project ($50 million) caused it to be abandoned.
The developer, Capital City Real Estate, has been in charge of over 60 projects in the D.C. Metro area, including The Morgan, Sherman Avenue Condos, and the Williams-Addison House. Below, you will be able to see renderings for the project that Eric Colbert & Associates provided to Curbed. A representative of the developer told Curbed that they are currently working on updating the renderings, so expect some changes.
