One of D.C.'s Prime Parcels Gets a Developer and a Vision

Two years after the historic Walter Reed Army Medical Center closed its doors, the transformation of one of the city's prime development parcels took a giant leap forward this week with the selection of Hines Interests to lead the redevelopment.

"D.C. Mayor Vincent C. Gray (D) and his economic development team have selected a group led by Hines Interests, of Houston, to oversee efforts to transform the former Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington into a 3 million-square-foot town center project," reports Jonathan O'Connell.

"With a proposal called 'The Parks at Walter Reed,' Hines and partners Urban Atlantic and Triden Development won the endorsement of both community groups and Victor Hoskins, deputy mayor for planning and economic development, who said Hines offered the District the best deal and a vision that most coincided with its own."

"At Walter Reed, Hines envisions a $1 billion development providing the District $37 million annually in taxes."
