Property Group Partners Acquires Fee Interest for the Development of $1.3 Billion 'Capitol Crossing' Project in Washington, DC

Long-Anticipated Development of Vibrant Mixed-Use Community to Move Forward Following Historic Closing

NEW YORK, Dec. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Property Group Partners, a leading owner and developer of Class-A commercial real estate, has acquired the fee interest for three blocks of the recessed portion of Interstate 395 ("I-395") located in downtown Washington.  

With today's news, preliminary work on the 2.2 million-square-foot, mixed-use development known as Capitol Crossing is cleared to begin, with the development of the platform and the first office building to commence in 2013.

Designed to achieve LEED Platinum certification, Capitol Crossing will be built on the largest contiguous, undeveloped site remaining in downtown Washington. Spanning from Massachusetts Avenue on the north to E Street on the south, the platform will cover the expressway between 2nd and 3rd Streets NW and create seven acres of property when completed. The development also will reconnect the Capitol Hill and East End districts that were cut off from each other by the construction of I-395 in the late 1960s.

The specific financial terms of this landmark transaction remain confidential.

"As a development firm that has constructed iconic buildings throughout the world, this is by far the most creative project that we have ever tackled. Thanks to our partners and scores of District and Federal officials who helped us reach this point, we can now move forward to make this long-awaited dream a reality," says Jeffrey Sussman, president of Property Group Partners.

A team of local CBE partners led by The Jarvis Companies will participate in the project.

Current plans call for five major buildings to be built on the site, one 150-unit residential building and four office buildings of between 300,000 square feet and 685,000 square feet. All of these buildings will be built to 130 feet and will have stunning views of the Capitol and the Washington Monument. The office buildings will achieve LEED Platinum ratings. The residential building will be at 600 2nd Street and will contain 180,000 square feet of space, while the four office buildings will be addressed as 200 Massachusetts Avenue, containing 407,000 square feet of space; 250 Massachusetts Avenue, offering 546,000 square feet of space; 200 F Street, with 685,000 square feet of space; and 201 F Street, containing 297,000 square feet.  Each high-rise building will feature exclusive ground-floor retail space designed for a mixture of restaurants, boutiques and service-oriented merchants. 

The site is located three blocks from Union Station, offering immediate connections to AMTRAK and the MARC and VRE rail lines. The Judiciary Square station of the Washington METRO system is located one block west of Capitol Crossing, The project is in close proximity to entertainment and hospitality amenities such as Verizon Center, the Washington Convention Center, cultural institutions and a large number of retailers and restaurants.

Skidmore, Owings & Merrill designed the master plan for the project, and Kevin Roche John Dinkeloo and Associates and Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates are design architects for the north and south block office buildings, respectively.

Real estate services firm NAI KLNB served as originating broker of the transaction, and a team of leasing brokers from the Washington office of Cassidy Turley represents Property Group Partners as the designated leasing agent for the project.

Microservices are a type of software architecture where large applications are made up of small, self-contained units working together through APIs that are not dependent on a specific language. Each service has a limited scope, concentrates on a specific task and is highly independent. This setup allows IT managers and developers to build systems in a modular way. In his book, “Building Microservices,” Sam Newman said microservices are small, focused components built to do a single thing very w...

CIOs and those charged with running IT Operations are challenged to deliver secure, audited, and reliable compute environments for the applications and data for the business.

In addition, the division of work is often siloed into traditional "towers" that are not well integrated for cro...

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...
More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes ho...

Sensors and effectors of IoT are solving problems in new ways, but small businesses have been slow to join the quantified world. They’ll need information from IoT using applications as varied as the businesses themselves.

He used a Raspberry Pi to connect sensors...
Let’s face it, embracing new storage technologies, capabilities and upgrading to new hardware often adds complexity and increases costs.
