The development pipeline at St. Elizabeths continues to grow with a project that would deliver almost ninety new homes to the campus.

District Towns at St. Elizabeths East would consist of 88 townhouses, bounded by 12th and S Streets and between Alabama Avenue and Sycamore Drive SE (map). Plans were filed with the Historic Preservation Office this week; Sycamore Associates, LLC is the developer and Lessard Design is the architect.

The two- and three-bedroom townhouses would have a fourth story loft and outdoor terrace, and the second floor would function as the main level with a rear deck. Each would also have an interior one- or two-car garage on the ground floor with either a flex space or a bedroom suite. Thirty percent of the townhouses will be affordable dwelling units for households earning between 30-80% of area median income.

Redbrick LMD and Gragg Cardona Partners are the master planners for the St. Elizabeths East campus, which will eventually deliver over 1,000 residential units, up to 700,000 square feet of commercial space, two hotels, a medical center, and a new hospital.
