WASHINGTON, DC-Archstone-Smith and Madison Marquette; Clark Realty Capital; and Forest City Enterprises are the three development teams that have made it to the short list of developers vying to build out the District’s Poplar Point. The District put out a Request for Expressions of Interest to develop Poplar Point in August. Seven teams responded by the Nov. 2 due date.

Poplar Point is a 110-acre stretch of land along the Anacostia River and is a key focal point of the larger Anacostia Waterfront Initiative, which is expected to receive about $10 billion worth of investment in parks, trails, housing, retail, office space, cultural amenities and environmental restoration at full development during the next 20 years.

Evaluation criteria in the RFEI included financial capacity, vision, commitment to community engagement and experience in developing comparable urban mixed-use waterfront projects. Development at Poplar Point is expected to include affordable housing and be designed to green standards. According to Neil Albert, deputy mayor for Planning and Economic Development, the city expects to select a development partner for the site within the next several weeks.
