Old Parcel D Designs


The original Parcel D designs, unveiled in 2007, called for 320,000 sq ft of office space above the supermarket, and a separate residential building, 400 Tingey, with 170-190 apartments. Designs by Shalom Baranes Associates.
A view of the previous designs for Parcel D, showing the western side of the development, which would face 4th Street. At far left is the sentry tower at M Street. The grocery store is still planned for the ground-floor area at left, but in 2010 the site plan was redesigned to be a single all-residential building with ground-floor retail. These 2007 designs by Shalom Baranes Associates.
