This Week’s D.C. Deal Sheet: MILESTONES Ribbon Cutting

From Bisnow

Mayor Muriel Bowser on Thursday afternoon joined Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton, staff from the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development and community leaders to cut a ribbon on the latest deliveries to The Parks at Walter Reed. The latest pieces in the massive redevelopment of the historic hospital campus are a retail marketplace anchored by Whole Foods and three multifamily buildings totaling 492 new homes.

“With Walter Reed, we planted the seeds years and decades ago, and now, we are delivering on that vision by creating jobs for our residents, closing amenity gaps, giving more residents walkable access to a grocery store, and bringing much-needed housing to a world-class campus,” Bowser said at the ceremony. 

The Whole Foods is on the ground floor of the 323-unit Hartley building at the center of the retail plaza. JINYA Ramen Bar, The Charmery Ice Cream Shop, Nailsaloon, Mezeh Mediterranean and Chase Bank also signed leases at the building. 

The other two buildings are co-living project Common Clover, which includes 60 units totaling 248 bedrooms, and Kite House, which features over 100 units. Together, the three new residential buildings include 79 affordable units. Two more residential developments, Aspen Square with 50 for-sale townhomes and The Reynard with 345 units, are set to deliver in 2024. 

The Parks at Walter Reed is a joint development effort between Hines, Urban Atlantic and Triden Development. It is expected to total 3.1M SF at completion.
