The District of Columbia will turn over the 62-acre site, located in northwest DC, from the Department of Defense when the hospital relocates in September 2011.

Walter Reed Medical Center is the United States Army's flagship medical center and serves more than 150,000 active and retired personnel from all branches of the military. Perkins+Will ‘s Washington, D.C. office will complete the master plan by November and focus on pricing an integrated and sustainable relationship between community and campus. The reuse plan must present a compelling vision for the site and propose land uses that reflect past use of the property while supporting the future needs of the community and the District.

According to James Wood, Principal in the Perkins+Will’s D.C. office, the new uses for the site will be redeveloped within the context of the existing campus buildings, the needs of the community and the requirements of the requirements of the Base Realignment and Closure Commission (BRAC) process.
