In Buzzard Point, there are big plans, led by a development team headed by Akridge, Western Development, and Orr Partners. The former U.S. Coast Guard headquarters may eventually be converted into housing, retail, restaurants, and a cafe, according to UrbanTurf.
The block-long, mixed-use project at 2100 2nd Street SW is planned to include 70,441 square feet of ground-floor retail topped by 485 residential units. There may also be a pharmacy and grocery store on the V Street SW side. In the two-level, below-grade garage, there will be 372 spaces and 151 bicycle spaces.
The second story of the building will be removed in the effort to raise the building and its surrounding streets to bring the site out of the 100-year floodplain, reported UrbanTurf.
For pedestrians, the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail will also be extended on the First Street SW side. For cyclists, the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail will be extended on the Second Street SW side.
