Capitol Gateway Project,
Washington, D.C.

Philip Franks led the design effort for the project team of the Capitol Gateway Project in Southeast Washington, DC. The project area around South Capitol Street consisted of 8 industrially developed blocks, where approximately 20% of the land was vacant. These 60 acres of land, with frontage on the Anacostia River, provided an opportunity for a 24-hour mixed use residential development for 5,000 people with 840,000 square feet of office space, 145,000 square feet of retail, a 500-room convention hotel, and a variety of open space and waterfront related improvements. The 1,842 housing units planned included low and high rise condominiums, with 20% of the units programmed for affordable housing. This project was a planning and development effort by the Dravo Corporation to capitalize on their excess waterfront land holdings at this site.
