From the Mayor’s office:

“The Hines-Urban Atlantic-Triden team was selected based on the strength and compatibility of their plan with the Reuse and Small Area Plans; their approach and ability to provide quality community benefits; their breadth of development and financial experience on complicated sites; and their development and financing capability.”

From Walter Reed Local Redevelopment Authority (LRA):

“The Walter Reed Army Medical Center (WRAMC) former campus is located on the north end of the District, between 16th Street and Georgia Avenue. This location is approximately six blocks from the the District boundary at Eastern Avenue and about two miles south of Downtown Silver Spring.

The LRA Site occupies 66.57 acres of the 110.1-acre former campus. The remaining 43.53 acres on the eastern portion of campus will be occupied by Department of State (DOS). The LRA site has frontage on all 4 sides: Fern Street on the north, Georgia Avenue on the east, Aspen Street on the South, and 16th Street on the west, making the site readily accessible to the adjacent neighborhoods.”

Big big news for Brightwood and north country – the Walter Reed Medical Center redevelopment winner is Hines/Urban Atlantic – The Parks at Walter Reed:

“When complete, Walter Reed will feature:

Retail – two viable, vibrant plans, one anchored by a large format retailer and one anchored by a smaller specialty grocer

Innovation Core – anchored by committed life science and health users – GW University, MIT professors, and Biotrial – supported by a Hyatt conference hotel

High Quality, Diverse Housing – serving a mix of incomes and households including a seniors village that facilitates aging-in-place

Creative Mixed Uses, Historic Programming & Open Space – drawing the community in through arts, history, and an impressive network of active and passive open spaces.”
