Mayor Muriel Bowser launched the groundbreaking of a new timber retail pavilion at DC's St. Elizabeths campus on Monday.
The 22,000-square-foot community space, designed by David Adjaye, will include an "Interim Retail Village" that will serve as an incubator for local retail and food concepts. The pavilion will be located on the Parcel 15 parking lot between the Congress Heights Metro and the Entertainment & Sports Arena (map).
The ground floor of the structure will have 4,560 square feet of retail across a dozen 380 square-foot spaces. There will also be a 2,090 square-foot greenhouse, a 380 square-foot green room, 1,520 square feet of educational space, and several tables with seating.
The pavilion, which will open in December, will be for interim use before Parcel 15 is redeveloped with a hotel building, an office building, and two residential buildings. Redbrick LMD and Gragg Cardona Partners are the master-planners of the development. Additional renderings are below.
