McMillan Reservoir Redevelopment Team Requests Time Extension·        

March 13, 2019

by Nena Perry-Brown

Years after a planned-unit development (PUD) for the McMillan Reservoir received zoning approval, and two years after a ceremonial groundbreaking, the project remains under appeal.

Now, the team behind the McMillan redevelopment is applying for a two-year extension for a portion of the project.     

Vision McMillan Partners (VMP) plans to develop the 25-acre industrial site between North Capitol and First Streets and Michigan Avenue and Bryant Street NW (map), constructing 146 townhouses, 531 apartments, park space, medical office buildings, and retail including a grocery store. VMP is made up of Jair Lynch Real Estate Partners, EYA, Trammell Crow, and architects Shalom Baranes and Perkins Eastman.

McMillan Park Conservancy supports saving the 20 acre under-surface water cisterns for adaptive re-use for public needs and preserving the entire 25 acre historically protected surface park as public land for outdoor recreational green-space. Including the DC reservoir, and a DC Wolf Trap outdoor concert stage with sunset vistas, a DC Glen Echo arts and peformance campus for families, sunlighting Tiber Creek for urban beach, and 20 acre under surface urban agriculture to end DC food deserts as well as farm to table for restaurants. Serviced by a North Capitol monorail, for mass transit to hospital centers and AFRH development to the North, and reducing the urban heat island effect, growing a sustainable urban development demonstration campus, "The New Green Deal " in DC.
