    ULI is cordially inviting you to a case study and exclusive property tour of two buildings at the Yards in Southwest Washington, DC, the historic Lumbershed Building and new home of Xylem Inc., located directly north of Yards Park along the Anacostia River, and the new 300,000 square foot headquarters of Chemonics International Inc. located at 1275 New Jersey Ave, SE and adjacent to a planned pedestrian-oriented street known as Yards Place. The Yards is a development of Brookfield Properties which, at full buildout, will feature up to 3,400 places to live, 400,000 SF of retail, dining & services, a flagship 225 room Thompson hotel, 1.8 million SF of office space and an award-winning waterfront park spread across approximately 25 buildings situated on 48 waterfront acres in the Navy Yard district. The neighborhood blends the historic feel of former Navy Yard industrial buildings given new lives through adaptive reuse, with sleek all-new construction components. Additional info can be found online at TheYardsDC.com.


    Join with the real estate directors of both Chemonics and Xylem and the team of design architects, leasing brokers and Brookfield developers for a panel discussion on these two unique properties exploring themes such as site selection, building and neighborhood amenities, design themes and the impacts of Covid-19 and hybrid work policies on office development and design.
