D.C. to Hold Community Block Party at Walter Reed Campus

Residents are invited to join D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser Saturday to celebrate the past and future of the Walter Reed campus at 6900 Georgia Avenue in Northwest.

The Walter Reed Dream Community Block Party, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., follows this week’s groundbreaking at The Parks at Walter Reed, a redevelopment project that will create 3.1 million square feet of residential, office, and retail space in Ward 4.

“Walter Reed represents the single greatest economic development opportunity that Ward 4 and the District of Columbia will see for generations,” said Ward 4 Council member Brandon Todd. “The groundbreaking represents a critical step forward in the redevelopment of Walter Reed, which will bring significant investment, jobs, and opportunity to upper northwest D.C. and the District as a whole.”

The project is expected to create 6,000 jobs, 2,100 units of housing, 432 of which will be affordable, and nearly one billion dollars in tax-generated revenue over 30 years.

Saturday’s block party will include live music, art, food vendors and activities for children.
