STUDIOS and StudioMB are bringing program and architectural diversity to Buzzard Point through the development of Parcel B. The project incorporates retail, commercial office space, market-rate residential, and senior affordable residencies. The mixed-use building promotes neighborhood connection to the waterfront and Audi Field.

Located in Southwest DC, this unique spot provides unprecedented access to urban events, including a large performance venue in ground-level retail, and proximity to Audi Field and Nationals Ballpark, creating a rich cultural tapestry. Park spaces connected to the street turn the area into an interactive “front yard,” fostering engagement among residents and the broader community. The development, a collaboration between Hoffman & Associates and Volunteers of America (VOA), involves VOA relocating their headquarters within the development. Their focus on addressing unique community needs aligns with their commitment to managing life-changing programs and services.

This approach enhances residents’ quality of life and encourages intergenerational interactions, tapping into the dynamic energy of urban life as a positive example for future generations.
