Part of the master plan to develop the Buzzard Point neighborhood of Washington, DC, River Point is a block-long community with 485 units and 70,441 square feet of ground-floor retail. A renovation of existing U.S. Coast Guard buildings, the project removed the second story to raise the building out of the 100-year floodplain. River Point features a two-story below-grade garage with 372 parking spaces and 151 bicycle spaces. Nearby attractions include Audi Field and National War College as well as upcoming waterfront establishments as part of the master development plan. This pedestrian-friendly community activates the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail and nearby restaurants and retail.
Designed to recycle and reuse construction materials and existing structures efficiently, River Point targets LEED® Gold certification. The community includes a solar-paneled roof, a plumbing system that reduces water use by 20 percent, water-saving toilets, energy-efficient lighting fixtures, and EnergyStar® appliances. River Point promotes sustainable transportation through electric charging stations, bike storage, and its walkability to nearby businesses and attractions, such as the Nationals Park, Washington’s home ballpark.
