THE PARKS IS AN ADAPTIVE REUSE MASTER PLANNED COMMUNITY, located on 66 acres of the 110-acre campus of the historic Walter Reed Army Medical Center. With a strong emphasis on sustainability, this development will be the District’s largest master planned community, weaving 3.1 million SF of mixed-use retail, residential, office, and educational space throughout an expansive campus environment

New Development

  • Children’s National Research & Innovation Campus: The 380,000 SF medical research facility features a primary care clinic and is the first in the nation dedicated to pediatric research devoted to complex and rare genetic diseases. The 160,000 SF Phase I opened in early 2021 and included the opening of Johnson & Johnson Innovation (JLABS), a healthcare and life sciences incubator.
  • The Brooks and the Vale: The two buildings were the first market-rate mixed-use buildings to deliver within The Parks at Walter Reed. The Vale contains 301 rental units and 18,000 SF of retail, and The Brooks contains 89 condos.
  • The Hartley: This building will include 323 rental apartments and 69,400 SF of retail space, anchored by a 40,000 SF Whole Foods grocery store. The Hartley will be at the heart of the retail marketplace within The Parks at Walter Reed and is expected to deliver in late 2022.

The Parks Community

At the nexus of several highly established residential neighborhoods, the site’s rolling green hills and pedestrian promenades will make direct connections to Rock Creek Park — the nation’s largest urban park — a pillar in the project’s strong emphasis on recreation. The Parks at Walter Reed is five miles from Downtown DC, minutes from established Montgomery County communities Bethesda, Chevy Chase, and Silver Spring, and highly accessible by foot, Metro, commuter rail, and car.
