Developing The McMillan Sand Filtration Site

Developing The McMillan Sand Filtration Site
                    
After decades of wrangling, the District has big plans for developing this historic 25 acre site.
                                               
The 25 acre field with rows of strange brick silos on North Capitol Street has long intrigued passersby. Is it home to a super secret bunker? An alien landing ground? Missile silos? It's actually a historic sand filtration plant that was in use until 1985.  After decades of wrangling, the District has big plans for developing the site. The final mix of park, offices and shops is being decided on now, and neighbors, preservationists and developers are all weighing in.
