The McMillan Slow Sand Filtration Plant is a unique historic landmark occupying a key location within the extended boundaries of the City of Washington, as envisioned in the McMillan Commission’s Plan of 1901. It exemplifies the influence of the City Beautiful Movement on public works at the turn of the twentieth century.
Today, plans for the New McMillan, an adaptation of the industrial site which will now house an 8-acre park, is quickly becoming the talk of the town.
Vision McMillan Partners has come together to redevelop the site with a clear goal in mind: to honor the historic legacy of the site by creating a welcoming place that promotes health, sustainability, and job opportunities through an elegant mix of amenities, homes, and office space.
With this video, IFM takes you on a virtual tour of the site's incredible transformation. We invite you to explore the site, which features a view from North Capitol; the neighboring pocket park; the adapted North Service Court, which accommodates grocery, retail, restaurants and parking; community center; outdoor amphitheater; and much more!
