The developer for The Yards in the Navy Yard neighborhood of D.C. has announced plans for Phase II of renovations.
Brookfield Properties says Phase II will deliver 10 buildings that will provide office, mixed-income residential offerings, restaurants, retail and public amenities. Phase II will introduce Yards Place, a main street that runs from the Navy Yard Metro to the new Diamond Teague park on the Anacostia riverfront. Yards Place will be curb-less, cobblestone and pedestrian-oriented, creating a walkable destination anchored by the Anacostia River and Nationals Park.
Brookfield Properties also says that once completed, The Yards will be the largest waterfront development in the D.C. region, encompassing 48 acres, including 6 acres with water frontage, with a total of 2 million square feet of office space, 400,000 square feet of shopping and dining space, 3,400 residential units and 7.5 acres of public green space.
