Design Unveiled For Parks At Walter Reed's Town Center
The first phase of the 3.1M SF Parks at Walter Reed broke ground last month, and now the development's town center is beginning to come into focus.
Hines, Urban Atlantic and Triden have revealed the design, albeit in black and white, for the development's mixed-use center that will include 300 rental apartments above 75K SF of retail, UrbanTurf reports.
The town center will be built along 12th Street NW between Elder and Dahlia streets on the site of the former hospital. The corner of 12th and Dalia streets has an anchor space set aside for a grocery store. The development team tried and failed to secure Wegmans to anchor the project.
The development, on 66 acres of the former Walter Reed Army Medical Center Campus, is ultimately planned to include more than 2,100 residential units, 150K SF to 250K SF of retail, 185K SF of office, a 200-room hotel, two charter schools, 116K SF of medical space for Howard University Hospital, 30K SF of arts and cultural uses and 20 acres of open space.
