Poplar Point is one of the last great urban waterfront redevelopment opportunities on the East Coast. The 110-acre site is being transferred to the District of Columbia from the federal government. Bounded by South Capitol Street, I-295 and the 11th Street Bridges, the site is largely unused, but contains some National Park Service and the US Park Police facilities.
Currently, the project is undergoing a federal environmental impact analysis and Small Area Planning phase. Poplar Point is envisioned to be the home of a variety of different uses including residential, retail, office entertainment, cultural, and park/open space uses. Currently, there are no specific figures for the actual allotment of space for the different uses. These figures will be determined during the Small Area Planning process.
Location: Between Anacostia River and Howard Road SE (Ward 8)
