Another construction project is now confirmed to be starting soon, with the announcement earlier this month that Skanska has signed a $60 million contract to build the new DC Water headquarters
on the banks of the Anacostia River.
For those who haven't been following along, the new building will be built as a "surround
" to the existing red-brick O Street Pumping Station (no, not the historic Main Pumping Station).
The Anacostia Riverwalk Trail bridge between the Yards Park and Diamond Teague Park will offer a prime viewing location for the construction, as you can see in the latest renderings passed along with the announcement (and I've included one of my shots of the existing O Street building for those who need refreshing).
This is the second office project that Skanska currently has in the neighborhood, as it is building the on-spec 99 M office building
a few blocks to the north.
