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 RFPhere.
