One other residential project has been announced but not yet broken ground: The Springs Living, a new senior community on Block 18.
No retail evident
The proposed Block 19 building does not appear to include any ground-floor retail, which would be in keeping with the vision for the area. The Columbia building on the nearby Block 20 has no retail space, and The Springs is slated to feature only residential amenities.
The eastern Waterfront buildings all include ground-floor retail, but Chad Bungcayao, vice president of acquisitions and dispositions at Columbia developer Jackson Square Properties, told The Columbian in 2019 that he and other developers envisioned the western end as a purely residential zone.
About half of the Waterfront’s 21 blocks are now either built out, under construction or have projects in development that have at least hit the pre-application stage.
