New green headquarters for DC Water on revitalized Anacostia riverfront

This glassy, wavy green structure will soon become D.C. Water‘s new headquarters, planned near Nationals Park, adjacent to Washington, DC’s newly-revitalized Anacostia Riverfront and the historic O Street Pumping Station.

These recently released renderings give a new look at what the proposed 167,180-square-foot headquarters will look like and how it will fit into the Navy Yard neighborhood.

The $55 million headquarters will feature an aluminum curtain wall and “variegated green rainscreen panel system,” and is set to become the headquarter’s most sustainable construction project ever.

Some of the eco-friendly features include a pump station that will use wastewater for heat recovery and a green roof and rooftop seating.

There will also be an entry court, interactive exhibit space, and boardwalk. Washington Business Journal reported that the new headquarters is expected to save the organization $2 million per year in operations and maintenance expenses.
