Parks at Walter Reed
Parks at Walter Reed
Bowman Consulting is honored to be a member of the Design Team that is developing the Master Plan for redeveloping the existing Walter Reed Army Medical Center (WRAMC). Bowman has been working with the successful team of Hines-Urban Atlantic-Triden for more than two (2) years, after the successful completion and selection of the Team. The Team members include many disciplines, Triden Development is a CBE partner and the City Government (DMPED) is also considered part of the partnership, as well. The project is known as: “The Parks at Walter Reed”.
Currently the Army owns the 66 acre campus. The City will purchase the property from the Army and then it will be transferred to the Master-Developer. This process is ongoing.
Bowman Consulting is providing surveying and civil engineering support to the talented Team that is assembled of Developers, Architects, and other Consultants. The City (DMPED) is currently rezoning the property and the Team is providing support and information to the City and its agencies, as needed.
Bowman Consulting has developed Schematic Development level plans that coincide with the Team’s vision. Design exercises have included schematic layout and analysis of on-site and offsite roadways. Ongoing evaluations of existing and proposed “wet” and “dry” utility systems. Bowman is also working with the various Development Groups that plan to renovate and occupy some of the existing “historic” buildings located on the southern portion of the site. These “NOI Users” require close coordination with the Master-Developer and the City (DMPED), which Bowman is providing. (For example Building # 11 is slated to become a DC Public Charter School, known as DCI and Building # 14 is being re-purposed for affordable housing for Seniors and Vets.)
We anticipate that Design Development and Construction Document Development for the 66 acre campus will occur over the next several years, as the former “WRAMC” develops into a thriving community, known as “The Parks at Walter Reed”
