New Waterfront Station Website Launched

Thanks to reader Andrew for pointing out to me that the new Waterfront Station website has been updated with new information. The old website, however, is still active as of this posting. The new Waterfront Station website shows a map with the location of the new buildings in this multi-phased project (see above). Buildings in blue are office space, yellow buildings are residential, and ground floor retail space is shown in red. Phase one, which is currently under construction, comprises the two office buildings in the middle of the map, as well as ground-level retail in those buildings. The new urban concept Safeway and CVS will be in the East tower, which should be ready for occupancy by the second quarter of 2010. The Safeway will be closer to the Waterfront-SEU Metro station entrance, while CVS will be a little further north along the reopened 4th Street.

Update #1: A topping-off ceremony was held on Friday the 13th, according to this press advisory from DMPED. It was announced that the DC Government offices that will occupy the first phase of Waterfront Station will be the Office of the Chief Financial Officer, DCRA, and two other agencies I didn't know were moving there - the Department of Planning and DDOT.

Update #2: The project director from Vornado/Charles E. Smith tells Southwest...The Little Quadrant That Could that 4th Street should be reopened by the beginning of 2010.
