Sneak peek at future Wegmans-anchored Fannie Mae campus

WASHINGTON — D.C.-based Roadside Development, which acquired Fannie Mae’s Wisconsin Avenue headquarters for $89 million last fall with plans for a mixed-use “urban village,” will give neighbors a look at its latest plans at a public meeting this week.

Roadside will show its conceptual designs, including building locations and heights, at a public meeting.

According to Angela Bradbury, commissioner of the Advisory Neighborhood Commission 3C, the meeting will seek input from residents before the commission makes its recommendation about the conceptual design to the Historic Preservation Review Board.

Roadside is expected to seek approval from the Historic Preservation Review Board in November.

The public meeting is from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Oct. 26 at the McLean Gardens community center ballroom.

The big news about the reboot of the Fannie Mae campus came in May, when Wegmans grocery store signed on as an anchor tenant.

Roadside Development and partner North America Sekisui House LLC (NASH) acquired the Fannie Mae headquarters’ 10 acres of land and the original buildings that were constructed by Equitable Life Company in 1958 and 1962.

The project’s completion is still a few years off.

Fannie Mae is moving to its new headquarters at 1100 15th St., NW, in about two years.

Roadside will begin work immediately after Fannie Mae moves out, but the new development is not expected to open until sometime in 2022.

The company’s other projects included CityMarket at O in Shaw and CityLine at Tenley in Tenleytown,

D.C. architect firm Shalom Baranes Associates and Michael Vergason Landscape Architects are part of Roadside’s development team.
