A developer in Washington, D.C., has hired Bellingham Marine and Moffatt and Nichol to design and build a new marina. The Yards, scheduled to open in the spring, will include 50 slips for yachts 40-125 feet, with half the slips for short-term stays of less than 10 days, as well as a paddleboard and kayak dock.
“The development of the marina will put The Yards more in touch with one of its best assets — the river,” said Deborah Ratner Salzberg, president of the developer, Forest City Washington. “We’re eagerly looking forward to adding the boating community to the wonderful mix of residents, tenants and visitors at The Yards.”
Excavation of the upland property started was started in October, and the docks will be installed starting this month. An operator for The Yards has not yet been announced.
