“Capitol Crossing will be a multi-phase master-planned development located in Washington’s supply-constrained Central Business District that is bordered by Massachusetts Avenue to the north, E Street to the south, Third Street to the west and Second Street to the east.
The 247,000-square-foot site consists of a recessed portion of US I-395 that slices through the east side of the CBD, which is surrounded by a multitude of public transportation options.
The project will be built over the active highway utilizing a platform to support the development of an expected 2.2 million square-foot mixed-use project.
The development’s focus will be predominately office. It will also include a significant ground floor retail component, below-grade parking and a small component of residential use.
Washington has encouraged the development of a platform over I-395 since the initial approval in 1990, with the expectation that it would re-connect F and G Streets between Second and Third Streets as originally conceived in L’Enfant’s master plan for the city. Restoring the site to grade level and filling in the highway overpass will result in a dramatic transformation of the area into a true destination.
This is the largest continuous undeveloped site remaining in Downtown Washington. Its size will offer tremendous opportunity for private firms to lease large blocks of contiguous space for current needs as well as future expansion space.”
