GbD Team Wins Walter Reed Redevelopment Project

Greener by Design is a member of the Walter Reed Redevelopment team of Hines Urban Atlantic, which recently won the contract to redevelop the Walter Reed campus. The team's proposal is a long range plan to redevelop 67.5 acres on the main post of the Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington DC. The federal government declared this area surplus property, thereby making it available to a local redevelopment authority (“LRA”) for re-use.
