The headquarters expansion project for Environmental Design & Construction (on Good Hope Road just below MLK) has finally started back up! The company had outgrown its current building on the site, so acquired the two adjacent historic structures and is now working to completely restore the exteriors and build it out as one space on the inside.
you can see where they have begun connecting the two buildings on the inside
my favorite signage mural, which will be preserved as an interior wall
the back of both buildings will be restored/rebuilt along MLK
I love projects like this because they are exactly the type of development that will bring Anacostia into a greener and functional future. Here's a professional company that has chosen Anacostia as its home base, and is retrofitting existing vacant buildings to do so.
The Rippeteau Architects-designed project is expected to receive a LEED Silver certification.
