Redevelopment’s Effect on Capitol Hill to Be Explored

The possible effects of the Anacostia Waterfront Initiative on Capitol Hill will be highlighted in a forum tonight at St. Peter’s Church in Southeast Washington, D.C.

Sponsored by the Capitol Hill Restoration Society, the meeting will focus on how the project could affect traffic, schools, businesses and neighborhoods in the Capitol Hill area.

Uwe Brandes, vice president for Capitol Projects for the Anacostia Waterfront Corp., the quasi-government group spearheading the redevelopment, will lead the presentation.

The initiative seeks to transform more than 3,000 acres of land along the Anacostia waterfront area into a mix of parks, residential neighborhoods, business and entertainment venues. Perhaps the biggest project currently under way involves plans for the new Washington Nationals baseball stadium, slated for completion in March 2008.

St. Peter’s Church is located at Second and C streets Southeast. Refreshments will be served at 7 p.m., and the presentation will start by 7:45 p.m. For more information, call (202) 543-0425.
