Greener Grass Awaits

The Yards Building G2

Located at the corner of First Street and Potomac Avenue, G2 at The Yards brings 248 Class A rental units, waterfront amenities, and creative incubator retail space to one of DC’s fastest-growing neighborhoods.

A glassy exterior embellished with metal panels optimizes sunlight and views while modern, light brick masonry at the retail level responds to the surrounding neighborhood.  The façade steps back 40 feet from the property line to accommodate the property’s right-of-way requirement and a large street-level courtyard. Views of the river and nearby ballpark are maximized through angled bays and a series of strategic setbacks beginning on the 11th floor.

The C-shape design establishes a unique architectural identity along the riverfront while carving space for a second-floor amenity terrace. Unit types are limited to achieve the development’s goal of 34% affordable units–with most units featuring private balconies. Several penthouse units offer high-end finishes with uninterrupted views of the water.

The lobby opens directly onto Yards Place, a pedestrian-focused, curb-less street that embraces the urban landscape and creates a welcoming connection for residents. Large retail spaces along the expansive West and South public avenues become anchor points for large crowds enjoying the Ballpark, Diamond Teague Park, Anacostia Riverwalk, and new Yards Place retail corridor.
