WASHINGTON, DC-Development of Anacostia Gateway has gotten under way with a recent groundbreaking ceremony for the 63,000-sf office and retail building. Spearheaded by Anacostia Gateway LLC–a group comprised of the Anacostia Economic Development Corp. LLC, the National Capital Revitalization Corp., and DRI Partners Inc.–the project boasts the distinction of being the first commercial development in the neglected Anacostia area since 1990.

“This groundbreaking at the gateway of Historic Downtown Anacostia represents my deep commitment to help bring new jobs, new retail, and new investment to neighborhoods east of the Anacostia River,” Mayor Anthony A. Williams said. The project, just one segment of the District’s multi-faceted plan to revitalize Anacostia and the rest of the Eastern section of the city, will cost an estimated $19 million to realize.

Situated at the end of the 11th St. Bridge, the project takes its name from its location at the entrance to the Historic Anacostia neighborhood at the corner of Martin Luther King Jr. Ave. and Good Hope Rd. SE. In addition to 49,000 sf of class A office space, the three-story facility will feature 14,000 sf of ground-level retail space, as well as underground parking to accommodate 112 vehicles.

“We’re making a long-term commitment to Historic Anacostia,” says NCRC president and CEO Anthony Freeman. “We want to make sure that the people, who live and work in this community, share in the value new economic investments create.” Anacostia Gateway is on schedule to reach completion in mid to late summer next year.
