Project

  • Residential: 1,595 residences of which 595 will be for sale and the remainder rental apartments
  • Retail: 220,000 square feet
  • Office: 325,000 square feet

The project, which has won awards for TOD from the Congress for New Urbanism and the Smart Growth Alliance, is the first LEED-ND-certified (sustainable neighborhood) project in the Washington area. Fifteen percent of the sale and rental housing will be affordable. The project is in the early stages of development. It emphasizes pedestrian and other non-vehicular connections to the station and will include a transit store to provide services to transit patrons. In October 2002, Metro signed a joint development agreement with an affiliate of the JBG Companies to develop the site in six lease and sale stages. Metro and a JBG affiliate signed a ground lease in March 2008 for the first stage with 279 apartment units and 15,500 square feet of retail shops, now completed and occupied. Since the project is being constructed on what is currently a Metro surface parking lot, future stages will await the developer’s provision first of replacement parking in two structures for Metro commuters and the relocation on-site of bus facilities near the station entrance. JBG started construction on the first replacement structure, a 426-space garage on the west side of the project, in July 2011.
