Looking into the easternmost area of Near Southeast, from the M Street exit ramp of the 11th Street Bridge. East M Street/Boathouse Row

The Near Southeast Urban Design Framework describes the East M Street area thusly: "Cut off from rest of the Near Southeast to the west and the Capitol Hill district the north by highway overpasses and rail connections, this sub-area has been physically and psychologically isolated."

The reconfiguration of the 11th Street Bridges has already impacted the area from 11th Street eastward substantially, and once DC Water's Combined Sewer Overflow work is completed in the area, the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail's reopened path along Water Street should bring many new visitors to the site.

Lincoln Property Company's concept plan for Maritime Plaza. The first two phases (Buildings I and II) have already been completed, offering 345,000 sq ft office space, and housing contractors working with the Navy. Phases III and IV are each 175,000 sq ft/7-story office buildings; there are also plans for a 250-room 8-story hotel at the southwestern edge of the property. A full-size image of the concept plan shows complete development area (and you can read the text on the drawing!). It shows plans for a parking lot or possible Phase V 3-story office building on the eastern edge of the project. No timetable has been announced for construction of the rest of the project.

M Street east of the 12th Street, with one of the Maritime Plaza buildings to the south. Plans are for Maritime Plaza to eventually add two more office buildings and a hotel. (10/03)


A view of Maritime Plaza from 12th and Water Streets, peeking from beneath an 11th Street Bridge overpass. The proposed hotel site is on the empty lot in the middle of this photo. (10/05)



Looking south past Maritime Plaza I--the Phase III office building will be built at the left of this photo. (10/05)


The west fronts of Maritime Plaza I and II--despite the nice landscaping, there's no getting around the fact that two big ole' freeway spans separate this area from its neighbors. (10/05)
