Navy Yard, also known as Near Southeast, is a neighborhood on the Anacostia River in Southeast Washington, D.C. Approximately half of its area is occupied by the Washington Navy Yard (including the Naval Historical Center), which gives the neighborhood its name.
Navy Yard was Washington’s earliest industrial neighborhood. The Navy Yard was a bustling nautical center during the 19th century and played an integral role in the development of the area. The lively wharf was a hub for jobs, serving ships with lumber and raw materials for the growing city. Today the Washington Navy Yard is the U.S. Navy’s longest continuously operated federal facility.
The construction of the U.S. Department of Transportation office complex and Nationals Park, the 2008 $600 million stadium of the Washington Nationals Major League Baseball team, have stimulated growth in the neighborhood. Most of the neighborhood’s land and businesses have been purchased by companies and is currently being developed into commercial and residential projects. Current plans are to construct 12 to 15,000,000 square feet of office space, 9,000 residential units, 1,200 hospitality rooms, 800,000 square feet of retail space, four public parks, and an Anacostia Riverwalk trail system.
