Washington Navy Yard, the former shipyard for the US Navy, is the oldest
establishment of the US Navy, in operation since the first decade of the 19th century. In 2004, the 42 acre riverfront
property site, including several historically protected former industrial
buildings, was awarded for redevelopment. In 2007 construction began on several
parcels. Today The Yard serves as a ceremonial and administrative center for
the US Navy.
The Yards have become one of the most desirable locations for
residents in the DC area. Its convenient location is just minutes from
DC’s bustling downtown business district, Capitol Hill and numerous federal
agency headquarters. In addition, DC’s MetroRail (green line-Navy Yard Station)
and MetroBus routes connect The Yards with almost anywhere in town.
The Yards offer expansive conveniences that are continuing to grow
as specialty retailers and an array of personal services clamor to this dynamic
area. Restaurants include bakery/coffee shops, pubs, Italian, Mexican,
Thai, BBQ, sushi and sandwich shops.
During the summer of 2014 a new 50,000 SF, full service Harris
Teeter grocery store will open at the corner of M and 4th Streets. Also opening in 2014 is VIDA
Fitness. VIDA will offer a 28,000 SF multi-level fitness facility, a salon, spa
and penthouse pool and lounge.
Residents in The Yard are steps from the National’s baseball
stadium and Waterfront Yards Park. Yards Park hosts many activities and
events throughout the year. The award-winning park offers a waterfront
boardwalk, open green space, an interactive water feature, a dog park and
access to the Anacostia Riverwalk trail for jogging and walking.
Residents moving into The Yard can enjoy luxury accommodations
that include beautifully landscaped courtyards, roof top pools, concierge
services and parking garages. Three sister properties that offer upscale living
are only blocks to the Navy Yard Metro Station. Managed by Bozutto Group, 70 Capitol Yards, 100 Capitol Yards and 909 Capitol Yards each
offer unique styles that include an array of amenities and cater to different tastes.
