Today was the topping out celebration for the $760 million Waterfront Station in Southwest. I’ve been hearing about the project for such a long time, I basically forgot what was supposed to go in there. Well, here’s a reminder courtesy of the Mayor’s Office:
The office component is fully leased to the District of Columbia. It will house workers for the Office of Chief Financial Officer, Office of Planning, District Department of Transportation and Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs. The retail component will include two existing retailers on the site—Safeway and CVS—along with several additional, new dining and neighborhood service-related retail tenants. In all, approximately 85,000 SF of retail space will open as a part of the project’s first phase. The buildings are expected to be completed in March 2010.
