Home to the 350-acre Saint Elizabeths East and West Campuses, a new hospital and the District’s Unified
Communications Center, Congress Heights will be an epicenter for future business opportunities.
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s con-solidation on the West Campus is the largest federal project since the Pentagon. In August 2013, 3,700 U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) employees relocated to their new 1.2 million square-foot headquarters and will be looking for banking, restaurants, coffee shops and entertainment establishments.
The 183-acre East Campus will also be redeveloped into a mixed-use community. Initial plans call for 1.5 million square feet of office space, 1,300 residential units, 350,000 square feet of retail space, 400 hotel rooms as well as institutional, civic and education uses. At the center of the redevelopment efforts will be the District’s first Innovation Hub, which will offer the opportunity for an integrated center of research, education, training, entrepreneurship, technology transfer and commercialization.
The Gateway Pavilion located at 2700 Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue, SE, is an innovative, flexible, and aesthetically unique structure serving a range of inter-im uses and letting visitors experience the site as the redevelopment goes underway. Envisioned as a desti-nation for casual dining, as well as a venue for hosting a farmers market and other weekend and afterhours, community, cultural and arts events, the Gateway Pavilion sets the stage for a once-in-a-generation development that will cultivate globally significant economic opportunities in a truly unique and historic place that is active and open to the community.
Ancillary development is also occurring at the Con-gress Heights Metrorail Station. City Partners and Sanford Capital have plans to build an eight-story, 236,000-square-foot office building with 8,650 square feet of retail space and a 205–215-unit apartment building with 7,600 square feet of retail space.
Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue, SE, and several adjacent corridors, are designated Great Streets corridors and District-supported revitalization areas. As funds become available, new and existing small businesses have the opportunity to apply for reimbursable grants of up to $85,000 per location to cover capital improvement costs.
