D.C., State Department Adjust Boundaries at Walter Reed

The parcel at Walter Reed Army Medical Center designated to be redeveloped according to the reuse plan crafted by the District of Columbia has been reconfigured, improving the city’s prospects for turning the eastern boundary of the historic Washington, D.C., site into a bustling retail corridor.

The revision stems from the General Services Administration’s decision last October to rescind its request for 34 acres of the campus, leaving the entire site to the District of Columbia and the State Department. The city’s 62-acre parcel now will include the entire frontage along Georgia Avenue, which is expected to be a hub for retail development under the city’s reuse plan.

The city’s original reuse plan calls for 850 housing units, 200,000 square feet of retail and 90,000 square feet of office space, reports the Washington Business Journal.
