Community involvement has been a vital part of the planning for Walter Reed redevelopment from the beginning and we want to make sure that you and other community residents are fully informed about what is happening as we go forward.
Mayor Gray Selects Hines-Urban Atlantic-Triden Joint Venture for Walter Reed Project
The Hines-Urban Atlantic-Triden team was selected to exclusively negotiate with the District of Columbia to acquire the surplus portion of the former Walter Reed Army Medical Center site. The joint venture was selected based on the strength and compatibility of their plan with the Reuse and Small Area Plans; their approach and ability to provide quality community benefits; their breadth of development and financial experience on complicated sites; and their development and financing capability.

About Walter Reed
The historical closing of the Walter Reed Army Medical Center in August 2011 signaled new changes not only for the 120 year old medical campus, but also for the city and Ward 4 residents. The Department of the Army also changed the land boundaries it originally offered to the District of Columbia for reuse in August 2011, adding five additional acres to the area affected by the plan.
The Walter Reed Local Redevelopment Authority (LRA) hosted public meetings and presentations to ensure the community was an integral partner in developing the plan. The final Reuse Plan was approved by the DC Council in July 2012 and the subsequent Small Area Plan was approved by the DC Council in April 2013.
