89

Mayor Bowser has released a site study for the construction of a new hospital east of the Anacostia River. It recommends the District construct the new acute care facility on the East Campus of St. Elizabeths. The campus currently includes the R.I.S.E. Demonstration Center and G8WAYDC, an urban park and marketplace pavilion which hosts a variety of events for residents. The St. Elizabeths East Campus will also soon house the Washington Mystics and a training facility for the Washington Wizards. Other development plans for the site include affordable family-sized apartments, home ownership town homes and an office building with ground floor retail.
