Plans are in the works for a development that would change the face of Anacostia’s main drag.

Four Points Development and Curtis Investment Group are looking to combine eight lots along Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue and build around and behind the existing properties. The finished product, dubbed Reunion Square, would include 130 residential units, retail and/or office space and a theater. Marshall Moya Design is the project architect.

While most of the existing properties at 2001-2027 Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue SE (map) will be retained, a print shop addition at 2021 Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue SE will be demolished as well as a one-story accessory addition to 2007 Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue. The Anacostia Playhouse would also be razed, but re-built as part of the new development.

The main residential building would rise about six stories and include 124 apartments and be built in an H-shape. The apartments would be a mix of studios, one-bedrooms and two-bedrooms. There would also be six townhomes as part of the project. The plan is for the housing to include market-rate and affordable units, and there are plans for live-work spaces for artists as well.

The development is scheduled to go before the Historic Preservation Review Board later this week.
