There are two other residential projects under construction in the neighborhood. Forest City Washington continues work on its 218-unit residential and retail building at The Yards development, slated for completion in 2014.  That project will include a Harris Teeter grocery store and VIDA fitness, adding retail and amenities to an area that has recently the seen the opening of several new resturaunts (Kruba Thai and Sushi, Potbelly, Gordon Biersch, and The Park Tavern.)  WCSmith is set to deliver 430 units in fall of 2014 with its Park Chelsea project.

A $1.5 billion mixed-use project to redevelop the nearby waterfront is already under way and will add hundreds more units to the neighborhood over the next 20 years.
