Grand Vision for Former Home of Walter Reed Hospital By EUGENE L. MEYER New York Times November 19, 2013WASHINGTON - The boxy Brutalist hospital built in the late 1970s stands virtually vacant, as do brick buildings erected during World War I, officers’ quarters dating to the 1920s or before, and myriad other structures that together make up the former Army medical center named for Walter Reed, the physician who linked mosquitoes to yellow fever at the turn of the 20th century.
But the 110-acre site that has been dormant since September 2011 after 102 years in operation will not remain so. The former Walter Reed Army Medical Center, where generations of wounded soldiers received treatment and where President Dwight D. Eisenhower and Gen. Douglas MacArthur died, is due for a civilian makeover.
This month, local officials in Washington named a master development team headed by Hines, a national firm based in Houston, with two local companies, Urban Atlantic and Triden. Plans call for 3.1 million square feet of development, costing $1 billion, over perhaps 20 years of construction - including 2,097 residential units, 250,000 square feet of retail space, 90,000 square feet of offices, a science center, restaurants, a Hyatt hotel and conference center, and 20 acres of open space.
