An 8-acre piece of land on Poplar Point is planned for a 2.3M SF development. The Columbian Quarter project would include five buildings with 1.6M SF of office space, 700 residential units and 52K SF of retail. The developer filed a new zoning application in October, after having its initial approval appealed, that would allow buildings of up to 130 feet tall. Redbrick LMD founder Tom Skinner said at a Bisnow event in October the company is creating an opportunity fund to take advantage of the project’s location in an opportunity zone. The developer is waiting to pre-lease a portion of the office space before breaking ground. The site was included in D.C.’s Amazon HQ2 submission and it has competed for multiple government agency relocations, but Redbrick has yet to announce any leases.
