St. Elizabeth East Ribbon Cutting
On Friday, November 22nd, Associate Kara Lanahan joined Cunningham | Quill Architects, Washington, DC Mayor Muriel Bowser, city officials, and the community for the ribbon cutting at the Residences at St. Elizabeth’s East, part of the larger redevelopment of the campus of St. Elizabeth’s Hospital, which has been underway for over 10 years. OvS, part of the team tasked with the redevelopment of the former Continuous Treatment (CT) Campus, is helping to establish a new community that offers affordable and market-rate housing.
“With the first residents moving into their homes at the reimagined St. Elizabeths, it is safe to say that this campus is finally seeing the renaissance that the residents of Ward 8 deserve,” said Mayor Bowser. “Together, we remain focused on ensuring that our longtime residents are and benefiting from all the new amenities and opportunities that are coming to the area.”
“Today is a special day as we welcome residents home to a historic place that had been closed off and underutilized for many years,” said Interim Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development John Falcicchio. “St. Elizabeths East is being transformed into a center for community and destination for entertainment and our residents will be in the middle of all the excitement to come.”
The Residences at St. Elizabeth’s East are marked by that which makes equitable development possible: service to the community, ecological conservation, and cultural and historic preservation.
