Late last year, Children's National Medical Center expressed interest in creating a small satellite office at the historic theatre in Takoma. Now, plans are emerging for their impending move into a campus just blocks away.
As part of the massive redevelopment of the 66-acre Walter Reed campus, Children's National is preparing to move into four buildings at the corner of Alaska Avenue and Fern Street NW (map).
Elkus Manfredi Architects and Array Architects are working with Children's to restore and retrofit the existing buildings on the site to allow the healthcare provider to move in by 2020.
The appearance of the existing buildings will not change much, but will be refreshed and updated. The first building, identified as 54X, will be a research building.
Building 52 will be renovated as a clinical care facility. Building 53 will also be renovated and will remain an auditorium. The existing parking garage, which contains 1,135 vehicular spaces, will be refurbished; the design will also make the garage ADA-compliant and add a third elevator, LED lighting and solar panels.
Earlier this month, the ANC 4B commissioners voted to support the conceptual design of the buildings and noted their desire to see more elevations of the buildings and their streetscape and vehicular access.
