Details are emerging for the temporary mixed-use activation planned for the St. Elizabeths campus.

The development team has filed a concept for Historic Preservation review of a 29 foot-tall timber retail/event structure on the Parcel 15 parking lot between the Congress Heights Metro and the Entertainment & Sports Arena (map).

The ground floor of the structure would have 4,560 square feet of retail across a dozen 380 square-foot spaces. There would 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. A mezzanine level above the rooms and retail would provide additional tables and seating, and there could be a mural on an exterior wall. Adjaye Associates is the designer.

The structure would be for interim use before Parcel 15 is redeveloped with a hotel building, an office building, and two residential buildings with 288 total units. Redbrick LMD and Gragg Cardona Partners are the master-planners of the development. Additional renderings are below.
