New Digs for Riggs and Dakota


As previously reported in DCMud, Lowe Enterprises Real Estate Group is planning the development of their 9-acre site at the intersection of South Dakota Avenue and Riggs Road. A partnership of Hickock Cole Architects, Jacksophie Development, Ellis Denning, CityPartners Development, and mixed-use planners, StreetSense, the development team is planning a mixed-use project that could include up to 900 condominium units, 100,000 s.f. of retail space, and corresponding parking.

While no final plans have been made, potential retail options include restaurants, a grocery store, salons, and dry cleaners. Developers also plan to improve the traffic dynamics of the intersection to make it more pedestrian-friendly. The project is estimated to cost $300 million according to the Washington Post’s coverage of the development.

Located blocks away from the Fort Totten Metro Center, the development may also include a pedestrian pathway to the station which is served by the Red and Green Line. According to the Washington Business Journal’s coverage of the project, WMATA would like to extend the Yellow line to include Fort Totten Station.

It may be another month before plans are finalized as community support of the project is necessary. Developers plan to meet with community groups to present and discuss their plans. Their current community website gives a general overview of the project. We will keep you posted as plans are finalized.

The Yellow Line already serves Fort Totten Metro station as of late 2006. Jim Graham pushed it through at WMATA. It only goes north past Mount Vernon Square in the midday, evenings, and weekends (not the weekday morning and afternoon rush times).

My question is WHEN is anything going to start? Since moving to this area the only developments I've heard of have been mainly industrial (i.e. food bank). While I can see it's imporatnce for the city as a whole, it does nothing for the local community which has already suffered long enough. Forget NOMA how about NE!
