Following recent approvals by the Zoning Commission and DC Council’s Government Operations and Economic Development Committees, all four resolutions granting the Surplus and Disposition of McMillan received unanimous passage from the full District Council during the December 2nd Legislative Meeting!
These approvals have been the culmination of years of extraordinary engagement among the District, development team and community, brought to life by the design vision of talented planners and architects. Since Vision McMillan Partner's involvement began in 2007, over 200 meetings engaged the community on redevelopment plans for the site, including building designs, traffic management, storm water management, preservation and public amenities. During this period, the master plan evolved with an emphasis on fulfilling community priorities.
With your help in the coming year, VMP will develop the designs in anticipation of breaking ground in early 2016. When complete, McMillan will lead the area’s transformation from a crossroads of diverse and unrelated land uses to a walkable mixed-use community connecting to the fabric of existing neighborhoods. By balancing architecturally cohesive and distinct new construction with carefully considered preservation and adaptive re-use strategies, McMillan will be the next great community in our city.
From the entire Vision McMillan Partners team, we wish you and your family a relaxing holiday and Happy New Year!
