Major project will reconnect east end with Capitol Hill


High-level executives with Property Group Partners will collaborate with Mayor Muriel Bowser and D.C. Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton to create Capitol Crossing, a $1.3 billion project that will reconnect the east end of downtown with Capitol Hill (via a massive platform to be constructed atop Interstate 395). Capitol Crossing will overhaul seven acres located largely above the freeway into a three-block, 2.2 million-square-foot complex of five-buildings (four office and one residential). Key to the project, is the platform that will be constructed between E Street and Massachusetts Avenue Northwest. The project should be completed by 2019. Work on that is scheduled to begin late July. The 247,000-square-foot development site is bounded by Massachusetts Avenue and Second, Third and E streets NW, on either side of the Center Leg Freeway. Capitol Crossing will create approximately 4,000 construction jobs and 8,000 permanent jobs and generate $40 million in new property tax revenue at build out.
