District Selects Developer to Build 500k Mixed-Use Project in SW

(Washington, DC) – Mayor Adrian M. Fenty on Monday announced the District has selected E Street Development to build a 500,000 square foot mixed-used project on a pair of District-owned parcels in Southwest. As a part of the project, the development team will build – at no cost to the District – a new fire station for Engine Co. 13 on one of the two sites.

“This is a great example of how we can leverage our under-used District-owned assets to create real value for our residents,” Mayor Fenty said. “This project is going to create jobs, it will bring much needed retail, it will provide training opportunities and of course—a first class fire station for Engine Co. 13. E Street Development is a great team and we’re confident they have the talent and the resources to get this project done.”

E Street Development -- which includes Potomac Investment Properties, City Partners and Adams Investment Group – will build more than 450,000 square feet of office space, a café and training center run by the DC Central Kitchen, more than 300 parking spaces and a 22,000 square foot fire station. It will also include community space for after school programs run by Kid Power DC.

The new fire station will be built as a part of the project’s first phase on a site less than two blocks away from the existing fire station so that Engine Co. 13 will remain fully operational during the project’s construction. The District will soon begin work on development of a Consolidated Forensic Laboratory on the site of the Metropolitan Police Department’s First District headquarters, which is adjacent to the existing Engine Co. 13 station. MPD is in the process of leaving that site for a new headquarters at the recently-renovated Bowen Elementary School along M Street in Southwest.

E Street was one of three teams who submitted bids for the project in a solicitation process run by the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development. The team is expected to break ground on the first phase of the project next year.
