The $1.3 billion project will include retail, office, and residential space

UPDATE: Capitol Crossing will have residential space. Robert Braunohler, regional vice president of Property Group Partners, sent this statement:

"Capitol Crossing is on track and moving ahead on all fronts as approved by the District and other agencies. The development plan, which includes office, retail and a residential component, has not been altered. We could not be more excited about the mix of live, work and play we will bring to this central part of the District. We continue to reach out and take inquiries from world-class retail, residential and office tenants to create a community that achieves the best possible mix of businesses and other tenants. There is real excitement in the neighborhood for this project and we are thankful for the many partners that have supported our vision including Georgetown University."

On the $1.3 billion Capitol Crossing project set between Capitol Hill and Downtown, Washingtonian reported, "Housing was never going to be a major component."

Robert Braunohler, of Capitol Crossing’s developer Property Group Partners, told Washingtonian that any plans for building residential units in the project are still "up in the air." The reason is because the land value is higher for retail and office space than for residential.

Until last month, Georgetown Law had exclusive rights to the project’s 150-unit residential building, but has yet to commit to the land.
