You are invited to the April luncheon meeting at Clyde’s Gallery Place on April 28 at noon. This month’s program will highlight two notable projects in Washington DC including multiple phases of the redevelopment of the Saint Elizabeths East Campus and development of the Bridge District at the foot of the Frederick Douglass Memorial Bridge.
If you are registering a guest, please use their name and email on the registration link so we will have a correct attendee list.

The St Elizabeths projects include over 250 multi-family rental units, 88 for sale townhouses and a medical office building delivered for Whitman Walker Health. Future plans include two additional office buildings totaling over 300,000 gsf, a hotel and a further 288 residential units.

The Bridge District is located on 8 acres of land between the southern end of the new Frederick Douglass bridge and the Anacostia Metro station, adjacent to over 100 acres of Anacostia Park. The 2,500,000 sf development will include approximately 2,000 residential units and 500,000 gsf of office development. The Douglass is a 750-unit multifamily project that is under construction and is currently the largest in the world to seek net zero carbon from operations, according to ILFI*. Overlooking the Anacostia River, The Douglass offers sweeping views of the Washington, DC and Arlington, VA skylines and proximity to nature.

Both projects are taking shape through the work of Redbrick LMD. Redbrick is a community-minded developer, owner, and asset manager of high-impact real estate, helping to create transformative buildings and dynamic urban neighborhoods that reflect how people want to live, work, and play. Redbrick has extensive experience and knowledge in developing new projects from the ground up, acquiring and repositioning existing projects, navigating entitlement processes, and structuring real estate transactions to maximize risk-adjusted returns. Redbrick has a development pipeline of approximately 8 million square feet of owned or controlled land in Washington, DC and is committed to the highest feasible degree of sustainability in its developments.
