Poplar Point

Poplar Point is one of the last great urban waterfront redevelopment opportunities on the East Coast. The 110-acre site is slated to be transferred to the District of Columbia from the federal government. Located in Ward 8 and bounded by South Capitol Street, I-295 and the 11th Street Bridges, the site is largely unused, but contains some active National Park Service and the US Park Police facilities.

Before the property can transferred to the District, the site must undergo a federal environmental impact analysis (EIS) and Small Area Planning (SAP) process. 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. Potential land uses - will be examined through the public planning process.
