The following images represent updated aerial renderings for the proposed Center Place project over I-395. These renderings are for the north block that sits along Massachusetts Ave NW and, as of this moment, are more current than what resides on the Louis Dreyfus website.
The plan now feature 3 buildings on the north block rather than 2 large buildings with a skybridge. The old massings evoked architectural comparisons to the universally despised Tech World development at 8th and K.
While removal of the skybridge is an upgrade I’m uncertain about the new configuration. With G Street to the southern edge of this block slated be pedestrian only street can the project support TWO activated pedestrian only alleys as well? I’m a little skeptical all these pedestrian only spaces will be active into the evenings given the lack of residential. I suppose if they targeted the right kind of destination retail it may work.
