Ideas Unveiled for Prime D.C. Parcel

The three finalists vying to redevelop 67-acres of Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Northwest Washington unveiled their vastly different visions for the historic site in public presentations this past week.

"The long-anticipated redevelopment of the Walter Reed Army Medical Center began to take shape tonight, as the three teams vying to develop the property presented their proposals to a packed room of Ward 4 neighbors and city officials," reports Aaron Wiener. "The plans include educational and science campuses, supermarkets, parks, and hotels."

Wiener describes the overarching vision and proposed mix of uses presented by each of the three finalists: Forest City Washington, Hines-Urban Atlantic, and Roadside Development.

"Advisory Neighborhood Commission 4A will be holding a special meeting on July 23 to review the proposals. The Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development expects to select a developer by early fall."
