CityCenterDC, a 10-acre site in the heart of downtown Washington DC, developed by Hines/Archstone, will be a bustling mixed use urban center with a diverse network of open spaces, containing alleys, streets, plazas, a park and multiple landscaped terraces.
The project re-introduces the original street grid of Washington’s L’Enfant plan as a framework for a pedestrian oriented vibrant, 18-hr mixed use neighborhood that connects into the surrounding city fabric and continues the revitalization of this sector of the city.
“It was important to be environmentally responsible, but at the most basic level green design is about being smart and efficient in how you use resources. The mixed-use aspect of the CityCenterDC means it’s one of
the city’s most efficient communities, and for many, it’s a dream place to
live and work.”
- Rodrigo Abela, GGN Principal
Anticipated completion date is 2013.
