Anatomy: The Building of Capitol Crossing

Comments () | Published April 4, 2014

Over the next several years, a massive mixed-use development called Capitol Crossing will rise on a platform built across a sunken portion of I-395 near Judiciary Square. The $1.3-billion project will reunite the east/west axis of Pierre L’Enfant’s plan for the District—now divided by a highway that DC Council member Tommy Wells once called “the scar downtown.”

In late March, the developer, Property Group Partners, will begin digging up water pipes and moving power lines and other utilities. The area’s infrastructure will undergo a $20-million upgrade.

Hover over a number for details.
