Just down the street from the first Starbucks location East of the Anacostia River and the blocks-long Reunion Square development, more retail and restaurant space is planned for one of Anacostia’s main intersections.
The Menkiti Group and Enlightened, Inc. have teamed up in hopes of redeveloping the vacant lot and strip of single-story commercial storefronts from 1201-1215 Good Hope Road SE (map). The proposal would restore the existing buildings while constructing three- and four-story additions in the rear.

The new development would deliver a coffee shop at the corner of Good Hope Road and Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue, alongside a bank and there would be access to the lobby of the offices on Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue. A local retail shop, market and two-story restaurant will have entrances along Good Hope Road. While the bulk of the office space will span the second and third floors of the buildings, both the office and the restaurant will have outdoor terraces on the second floor.

R. McGhee and Associates and Cunningham|Quill Architects are respectively the historic preservation consultant and design architect for the project. The Historic Preservation Review Board is expected to consider the new conceptual plans in early November.
Correction: An earlier version of the article misstated the team behind the development; it is a partnership between The Menkiti Group and Enlightened, Inc. R. McGhee and Associates is the historic consultant and Cunningham|Quill is the architect.
