URBAN TURF | Anacostia Storefronts to Get a Makeover

Go HERE to read the full article by Shilpi Paul.


Downtown Anacostia may look a lot fresher in a few months. 
On Wednesday night, ARCH Development met with the community and revealed that more than 20 storefronts throughout Historic Anacostia, mostly along Martin Luther King, Jr. Avenue and Good Hope Road, will be scrubbed up, restyled and brightened over the coming year. 
DC’s Department of Housing and Community Development allotted funds for the Streetfront Improvement project last October. Since then, ARCH has been working to reach out to retailers and architects. So far, Streetsense and DC Historic Designs have signed on to help design the new facades. While the changes won’t involve too much heavy construction, the designs will have to go through the Historic Preservation Office.
