Historic Anacostia Neighborhood Investment
2228, 2234, 2238 and 2252 Martin Luther King, Jr. Avenue SE
In July 2010, the DC Department of Housing and Community Development purchased 2228, 2234, 2238 and 2252 Martin Luther King, Jr. Avenue SE (more commonly known as the Big K Site) in an effort to strategically invest in a long-standing abandoned and deteriorated group of properties that represent a blight to the Historic Anacostia neighborhood. The Department views this group of properties, due to their character and location, as a critical neighborhood landmark that has the potential to catalyze further revitalization and development. The Department is coordinating with other District agencies, such as the Office of Planning and the Historic Preservation Office, as well as the community, to develop and refine the possible uses of the sites.
DHCD, in partnership with the Historic Anacostia Block Association, held a first community meeting to discuss the Big K Site redevelopment on November 10, 2010. The presentation and community comments from the meeting are below.
