Six months after the public got a glimpse of a new Whitman-Walker health center at St. Elizabeths, a new design is being proposed.

The development team for Parcel 17 has submitted a new concept for historic preservation review of the building slated for the northwest corner of 12th Street and Alabama Avenue SE (map). Winstanley Architects & Planners furnished the design.

In November, Whitman-Walker signed a lease for all but 6,000 square feet of the new building, which will be 70 feet tall plus penthouse and include 122 parking spaces. Headed toward the Congress Heights Metro station, the parcel will also include a plaza, a second building, and a green pad.

As master-planned by Redbrick LMD and Gragg Cardona Partners, the completed St. Elizabeths campus will deliver over 1,000 residential units, up to 700,000 square feet of commercial space, two hotels, and a new hospital, for which the mayor's office announced a new financing deal last week.
