The centerpiece of the redevelopment of St. Elizabeth's is coming into focus. 

A Redbrick-led development team has filed plans with DC's Historic Preservation Office for a five-building development at Parcel 15 at the St. Elizabeth's campus in Ward 8 (map).

The 650,000 square-foot project, designed by Adjaye Associates and Hickok Cole, will include a 178,000 square-foot office building, a hotel, and residential buildings with upwards of 300 units. At least 150 of the residential units will be affordable to households earning 30-80% of median family income.

There will also be an 80,000 square foot public park, as well as a commercial center with 30,000 square feet of retail, dining opportunities, and a grocer. A portion of the retail will be devoted to incubator space for eight local businesses, and the Jose Andres Group will provide support and guidance to the Chefs-in-Residence program.

The proposed design of the development, dubbed Sycamore and Oak, currently features curvilinear facades above glassy first floor arcades, but that could change as the project goes through the historic review process. Shared roof space will connect the five buildings.

Redbrick was awarded development rights for Parcel 15 in 2019, and an interim timber retail pavilion broke ground last summer for the site which will be used until work starts on the permanent development.
