Since January, 2003
            
 Sliding from Before to After

With the 305-unit Dock 79 apartment building very close to completion, the developers of the site on the Anacostia River that us oldsters still refer to as Florida Rock have now filed with the Zoning Commission their plans* for the project's next phase, a 130-foot-tall 253-unit residential building with 12,500 square feet of retail at 71 Potomac Avenue.
There will be at least two levels of underground parking, with a third level being pondered "given the parking demands of [Nationals Park] and the pending soccer stadium." And although the building is not covered by the city's Inclusionary Zoning laws, the filing says that eight percent of the units will be set aside for households with incomes up to 80 percent of the Area Median Income.
The construction of this building will also bring the completion of "Florida Rock Alley," running between 71 Potomac and Dock 79 and providing another route for pedestrians to move between Potomac Avenue and the waterfront along with the access to parking and loading for both buildings. The waterfront Esplanade will also be extended along 71 Potomac's frontage.
The 12,500 square feet of retail is an increase the previously approved 5,600 square feet. In the filing statement, developers Florida Rock Properties and MRP Realty mention that "based on the success in leasing retail space in Dock 79, the Applicant is confident that there is a retail market along Potomac Avenue," and that "the desire for retailers to locate in this area has only increased" since the previous plans were approved in 2013.
The site plans are very helpful to not only understand where this Phase 2 building at 71 Potomac will be, but how the eventual third and fourth phases are dependent on the construction of the new Douglass Bridge and its accompanying traffic oval, and the demolition of the existing bridge. (The filing mentions DDOT's current estimated schedule of a notice to proceed on the new bridge in 2017 and completion in 2020, but We Shall See.)
There are a slew of renderings in the zoning packet, which of course I'm snagging (we'll call it a one-for-one exchange for all of the photos of mine they used in the site overview portion of the package!).
These plans will require ANC presentations and a vote and zoning hearings and building permits and financing, so don't pack your bags just yet.
*For those to whom such things matter, this is a second-stage PUD filing.

Thanks for the post. At 130 ft tall, this should have some spectacular views.

I think it is the FL Rock Alley--I noticed nice decorative overhead lights had been strung across this space. It should be a nice area when Dock 79 opens.

I also like the solar panels above the dock in the rendering. Hopefully Forest City can do that with the Yards Park marina as well.

image 7 looks strikingly like Velocity.

Doesn't look as nice on outside to me, IMO. I like the color palette of Dock 7.

Looks fine, nothing special. Let's hope they build the larger garage. Can never have too much parking.

Dude:

" Let's hope they build the larger garage. Can never have too much parking."

No offense but wrong, wrong, wrong. Much has been written about the adverse impacts of parking but abundant parking undermines transit ridership and walking/biking, significantly adds to the cost of housing, and ensures that the building is designed around accommodating vehicles rather than other aesthetic priorities.

Oh right, people love riding metro.


RMP says: (7/18/16 8:10 AM)
I notice that Parcel O is now on the Highlighted Projects map. Look forward to following that progress.


jdc says: (7/18/16 8:36 AM)
I can imagine a future - maybe 2019/2020 - where the empty lots that plague JD Land are only the parcels around canal park and parcel A. Not that those aren't significant vacant land.


202_cyclist says: (7/18/16 10:54 AM)
@Dude-- I can't excuse the inexcusable with metro's performance.


FYI-- when I was running this morning, I noticed a needle in the vacant lot next to the charter school. Watch out if you are walking your dog there.


jdc says: (7/20/16 3:47 PM)
Does anyone see the office space or hotel in later phases not ever occurring, and instead it being changed to condos or apartments? I guess of the two, I think a hotel may be a bit more likely because of its proximity to the soccer stadium and Ft. McNair. But I cannot see office space really being a) needed or b) needed there.


jdc says: (7/20/16 3:49 PM)
I also see they're pulling the permit for the pool at Dock 79.
