Project Description

Estate at the Yards blends landscape with community, in a refined, luxurious residential building that pays homage to Navy Yard’s historic past. Designed as an extension of Yards Park, Estate Transforms a previously empty lot along the Anacostia River into a place for revitalization and connectivity.

Yards Park, central to the design of the development, serves as a shared “front yard” for residents by providing green space and river views, while encouraging connections to the surrounding community. The park anchors the building and activates the area for residents and community members alike. The stepped terraces and other outdoor amenities cascade into the park, providing green space for all residents. The building incorporates a sustainable stormwater management system in a visible, fully integrated way to protect the river. The northwest corner of Estate, also connected to the adjacent and revitalized green space at Tingey Square, serves as a gateway for the Yards East neighborhood.

The historic architecture and lush landscape of the neighborhood are reflected throughout the design of the building’s interiors. Echoing the outdoor terraces and park connection, the interior architecture, indoor garden, and other amenities establish areas for quiet respite and relaxation. By emphasizing green spaces throughout the interior and exterior of the building, both on the ground floor and floors above, the design creates a strong connection with Tingey Square that flows throughout the building to Yards Park.
