Massive Poplar Point Project Planned for Southeast

Here’s another massive multi-building development on the boards for DC. Redbrick Partners has recently filed plans for a huge 5 building mixed-use project for a section of Poplar Point in Ward 8. The exact site is located on each side of Howard Road, SE and also in between I-295 and South Capitol Street, SE.

The residential portion of the project will include 680 to 700 homes with the office portion receiving 1.6 million sq. ft. of space and retail getting 45,300 sq. ft. Underground parking will include 930 parking spaces, 541 long-term bike parking spaces and 90 short-term parking spaces.

Details have been released about the construction schedule. Building C, a residential project, will be built in Phase I followed by 2 office buildings in Phase II. Phase III, the final phase, includes an office building and 2 more residential buildings. Retail is spread across multiple buildings in the project.

In other news, the project includes improvements to the nearby Anacostia METRO station, the developer has recently added more 3 bedroom affordable units to the building plans, and the major office anchor tenant may be the US Department of Labor. Redbrick is one of several local office developers courting the Department for its new headquarters needs, which supposedly is over 1.4 million square feet. That’s a big lease!
