Envisioning the Future of St. Elizabeths Hospital Campus

A National Historic Landmark nestled deep in East Washington, the St. Elizabeths Hospital Campus occupies 359 acres in Ward 8. With ownership split between the federal government and the District of Columbia, the campus has been the subject of a number of rehabilitation and redevelopment proposals. More recently, the St. Elizabeths campus has been viewed as a secure location for federal government operations following the attacks of September 11, 2001.

The DC Building Industry Association (DCBIA) will host a morning program on “Development at St. Elizabeths Hospital Campus: Federal Plans & the District’s Objective.” Sponsored by Anacostia Economic Development Corporation, DCBIA East of the River Development Committee, Transwestern, and Washington, DC Economic Partnership, the program will be held on Friday, November 3, 2006, 8:00–10:30am, at the National Press Club, 13th Floor, 14th and F Streets, NW, Washington, DC. A buffet breakfast will be served.

Come join us to learn more about the federal government’s plans for a multi-million dollar redevelopment that will include a new headquarters for the Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. Coast Guard. We also will discuss the District’s plans for its portion of the campus and potential development opportunities. In addition, an update on development in Anacostia will round out the program.

Featured speakers include N. Linda Goldstein, Goulston & Storrs, and Cheryl P. Hamilton, ADAOHA Properties, Co-Chairs of the DCBIA East of the River Development Committee; Ellen McCarthy, Director, DC Office of Planning; and Dawud Abdur-Rahman, Development Director, General Services Administration. I will leadoff the program with an overview on development in Ward 8 and provide context for the significance of the development plans at St. Elizabeths Hospital Campus.

The program is free of charge, though reservations are required. For more information on the program and to register, visit www.dcbia.org.
