Staff Reporter- Washington Business Journal

The District is in the market for a contractor to oversee the McMillan Sand Filtration Plan development and the team leading it, as the 25-acre, $720 million project proceeds toward groundbreaking.
Vision McMillan Partners — led by Trammell Crow Co.Jair Lynch Development Partners and EYA — earned its most important project approvals, from the D.C. Council and the Zoning Commission, in 2014. Now it’s time for the city to select a contractor to make certain they do as promised.
The complex, controversial project calls for 146 townhomes, 531 apartments, a grocery store, more than 1 million square feet of medical office development, an 8-acre central park, a 17,000-square-foot community center and the reintroduction of the Olmsted Walk around the perimeter. Some historic resources on the property, including four regulator houses and two acres of underground filter-beds, will be preserved.
Bids for the contractor job are due by 2 p.m. on June 29. Check out the RFP here.


  1. Curious- did MAG or ANCs have any input into the requirements laid out in RFP?

  2. we'd better watch this new lot very closely to make sure more of OUR MONEY is not frittered on promotion and "neutralizing of community voices"...
