Constitution Square is located next to New York Ave metro station between First and M streets slated for NoMa. NoMa corridor is the new 16 million s.f. (potential) redevelopment area on North Massachusetts Ave. and the Capitol. This is a walkable (close to Metro stations and shops) mixed-use, and livable community. It's interesting how NOMA BID (biz improvement district) refers to this hood as "Capitol Hill North?"

First phase of the project will include 204-room Hilton Garden Inn, One Constitution Square (speculative office space), Two Constitution Square 589,000 s.f. of Class A office space of which part has already pre-released to the Justice Department, Harris Teeter snatched some 50,000 s.f. there, another 330,000 s.f. for retail, and 440 apartment units.
