The District has cut ties with the firm it hired less than six months ago, at a cost of $50,000 a month, to run the St. Elizabeths East Gateway Pavilion.
D.C.-based Brown & Fried LLC was paid $288,316 to manage the pavilion, which opened in late October to serve the community and the new U.S. Coast Guard headquarters, which is on the St. Elizabeths west campus.
“We initially hired one and we were not pleased with the way it was working for the District of Columbia,” Victor Hoskins, deputy mayor for planning and economic development, said recently of Brown & Fried during a D.C. Council oversight hearing. “So we are exiting that relationship.”
