Development near new ballpark is on its way

By: Jonathan Groner
After more than a decade, a mixed-use development across the street from D.C.'s new baseball stadium is almost ready to go up. The 5.8-acre site will house four buildings with a total of 1.1 million square feet of space, including retail, apartments, offices, and a 235-room hotel. The location is planned as a destination for baseball fans who are in the area for a Nationals game.

The developer, FRP Development of Sparks, Md., worked with the Anacostia Waterfront Corp. and with waterfront developers to deal with issues like parking, traffic, and access.

This now-bleak waterfront area of the city's Southeast quadrant, adjacent to the Anacostia River, will be completely unrecognizable in three or four years as development spreads south and east of Capitol Hill and as the new stadium goes up.
