GET THE FACTS!
ON REDEVELOPMENT OF THE MCMILLAN SAND FILTRATION SITE

FtcTtoN:
FACTS:

vtstoN McM|LLAN PARTNERS',(VMP)
SPACE THATWAS WAS ONCE A PARK

PLANS ARE TOO DENSE AND DO NOT PROTECT OPEN

r

VMP's plan createsthree parks, including an expansive 6.25-acre centralparkwith a communitycenterand pool. lf you add in the South Service Court and other public gathering places, there will be a total of rz acres of new, public, open and green space. Specifically, of the 3% block site, the majority - almost z blocks - will be open and green space distributed throughout the site.

r

World-renowned landscape architects Nelson Byrd Woltz will design the public green space. They are famous for their work with urban parks, have garnered over Bo national and regional awards and have been featured in many national and international publications. This community will soon have one of the largest and bestdesigned parks not only in the District, but also in the region and in the country. While there was once a small park on the federal side of the McMillan site (nearthe reservoir, on the west side of First Street), the McMillan land that VMP is redeveloping was never a park. Historically, it was a working industrial site with manholes dotting the landscape every few feet, providing access for workers to the underground cells. ln order to deliver water to the city, the site was in use all day and night, cleaning and pumping water.
When the McMillan Sand Filtration Plant first opened, Olmstead, Jr. was commissioned to design a walking path around it that would offer residents a view without disturbing the daily work of the site. This Olmstead Walkisbeing restored as partof the plan andwillsurroundthe entire redevelopment/ connectingthe parksand open spaces, providing engaging access and offering tremendous views of both the site and surrounding landmarks. Every step of the walk will be publicly accessible and maintained. Finally, the fences on the site will be down, and there will be a park for residents to use and enjoy.

o

o

FICTION:
FACTS:

VMP PLANS REPRESENT A NOTABLE DESTRUCTION OF THE HISTORIC FABRIC OF THE SITE. ALL OF THE CELLS WILL BE DEMOLISHED, ALONG WITH THE WALLS FRAMING THE COURTS AND MANY OF THE SILOS

. . .

The very foundation of the VMP plan is a $zz million preservation program that will create exemplary design

compatible with this historic landmark. The majority of the above grade structures will be preserved. Every silo, every regulator house, every washer and every basin will be preserved and the historic courts will be maintained with special pavers. While the plan includes repurposing of underground cells, it is not feasible to place grocery retail inside the chambers or use the underground cells for foundation. Not only have retailers expressed opposition to the idea of an underground location here from a sales perspective, but the cost of making the cells safe enough for this type of use alone would make rental rates prohibitive for community and retail uses alike. Two underground cells (each the size of a football field) will be preserved, and the current plan includes repurposing Cell r4 for retail use. Cell zB will be preserved to view through the community center, as part of the

.

planned memorialization. The park will incorporate many features of a "cell with the lid off" as way of further using the unique structures of the site.
The VMP plan incorporates water as a theme related to the history of the site. For example, the historic fountain currently located on the federal site will be relocated to the site. There will be spray grounds for children, a 25-meter pool inside the community center, a bio pond for water management and water features incorporating the historic silos. There will also be historical memorialization, including community-planned and

executed self-tours. The Historic Preservation Review Board (HPRB), in a unanimous vote found that VMP's revised master plan "has been developed to retain important character-defining features of the site sufficient to convey its historic cha racte ristics."

FICTION:
FACTS:

NEW BUIDLINGS WILL BE LARGE AND DISPROPORTIONATE

r o

Buildings will increase in size to the north west of the site, while eastern and southern sides of the plan will step down to work with the scale of existing neighborhoods.
Two thirds of the total area of the site will be open and green space. The remaining one third of the site will include local serving retail with a premium grocery store anchor, restaurants, community and cultural space. There will also be housing and offices on site.

r

VMP's plan will result in 3,2oo new, permanent jobs,3,ooo construction jobs and generate sr.z billion in newtax revenues. 35% of the local contracting opportunities are required to go to certified local, small and disadvantaged businesses and more than half of alljobs created must be offered to District residents.

FICTION:
FACTS:

THE HISTORIC PRESERVATION REVIEW BOARD REJECTED VMP PLANS

o

On October 3r", 2or3, the HPRB voted unanimously that VMP's revised master plan and design concepts

satisfied their requirements. Because they cannot vote on demolition, they referred the project to the Mayor's Agent. The project now moves forward to the Mayor's Agent and Zoning Commission for additional approvals.

FICTION:
FACTS:

THERE WAS NO PROCESS FOR IDENTIFYING THE DEVELOPMENT TEAM. VMP WAS THE SOLE BIDDER ON MCMILLAN.

.

ln zoo6, the National Capital Revitalization Corporation (NCRC) issued an RFO to select a development partner for the McMillan site. The selection process spanned several months and included several community meetings and communityvotes. The initial process was conducted by Mayor Fenty, signed offon by MAG leaders and later evaluated and held up by Mayor Gray. The eventual five bidders were judged on their land development capabilities, vertical development capabilities and financial capacity. Community members attended tours of the vertical development projects for all five bidders. ln July zoo7, Vision McMillan Partners was selected fromamong the five bidders by the NCRC because of their collective experience with complex redevelopment projects that present a number of overlapping priorities such as historic preservation and open space.
