MLK Gateway to Break Ground in Historic Anacostia
Note: The renderings have been updated since publication.
Groundbreaking is imminent for a new development at one of Anacostia's most prominent intersections.
DC representatives and MLK Community Partners, comprised of The Menkiti Group and Enlightened, Inc., are holding a groundbreaking ceremony this week for MLK Gateway, a development that will incorporate the façades of the four historic single-story commercial storefronts from 1203-1215 Good Hope Road SE (map).

MLK Gateway is expected to deliver a Keller Williams Capital Properties training academy and a new 20,000 square-foot headquarters for IT consulting firm Enlightened. Other tenants being courted include a small-format grocer, a sit-down restaurant, and other neighborhood-serving retailers. Hickok Cole Architects is the designer.
The city awarded development rights for the site to The Menkiti Group in December 2016; the concept for the development received Historic Preservation Review Board approval last January. The project also benefits from Opportunity Zone funding in cooperation with the Local Initiatives Support Corporation.
