Southeast D.C.’s planned luxury movie theater seeks one-year extension

The entire project will encompass four blocks with residential space, retail, and parking

In March 2016, Curbed DC reported that Southeast D.C.’s first luxury movie theater would begin construction that year, but there have been delays, and now UrbanTurf reports that developer Forest City Washington is asking for a one-year extension. If approved, the developer will have until February 2019 to file building plans. Currently, the site houses D.C. Water, which is in the process of relocating.

When complete, there will be a Showplace Icon movie theatre as well as two buildings with 600 residential units, an expanded Diamond Teague Park, up to 50,000 square feet of retail, and 331 garage parking spaces, as reported by UrbanTurf.
