Principal Will Lattanzio (back row, third from left), and engineers Kierra Wiggins and Josh Powell (back row, first and second individuals respectively) of Wiles Mensch (WM) joined the Redbrick development team at the recent topping off for the new Whitman-Walker facility development on Parcel 17 of the St. Elizabeth’s East campus (rendering pictured below). The new healthcare facility will occupy the once vacant site on the southern edge of the campus — located between Alabama Avenue, Sycamore Drive and 12th Street SE near the Congress Heights Metro station. Whitman-Walker will establish a new health center at St. Elizabeth’s East as part of the District’s mission to revitalize the Ward 8 campus.
The D.C. health nonprofit has signed a lease to occupy 116,000 square feet in the new building. The six-story building will house a pharmacy on the ground level, where both the center and system will share space for programming. They also plan to bring on a community partner. Whitman-Walker Health will occupy three floors for primary care, behavioral health services, dental and substance misuse treatment services. The Whitman-Walker Health System will take up two floors for its institute, which includes the group’s work in education, policy and research.
WM was commissioned to provide survey, civil engineering, and dry utility engineering for the development. This project is one of 10 WM has supported on the St. Elizabeth’s campus.
Congratulations to the team on the achievement of this milestone!
