Capitol Crossing

Capitol Crossing

Mayor Muriel Bowser, DMPED and Property Group Partners broke ground on Capitol Crossing on May 12, 2015. The development of Capitol Crossing will reconnect the East End and Capitol Hill. This project will consist of five new mixed use buildings totaling over 2.2 million square feet. Capitol Crossing is expected to create 4,000 construction jobs and 8,000 permanent jobs, all while dramatically improving the utility infrastructure supporting local neighborhoods. Once completed, annual new property tax revenue of $40 million is expected. Capitol Crossing will deliver almost 70,000 square feet of retail space, over 1,100 parking spaces, and 440 bicycle parking spaces. New I-395 entrance and exit ramps will improve traffic flows and make travel along Massachusetts Avenue safer for pedestrians and cyclists. Infrastructure will be upgraded for the surrounding neighborhoods. To view more information about Capitol Crossing, follow this link.
