The Master Plan for Reservation 13, Hill East Waterfront, was prepared as an Anacostia Waterfront Initiative (AWI) Target Area Plan. It was approved by Council in October 2002. The Master Plan presents the first opportunity to re-envision the site, not as a Reservation but as a beautiful public place that links the existing neighborhood to the waterfront while also meeting District-wide and neighborhood needs for health care, recreation, civic space, and housing. The Master Plan creates a new identity for the site. Currently, the District, through the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development, plans to redevelop 50 acres at Hill East into a vibrant, mixed-use urban waterfront community in accordance with the Council approved Hill East Master Plan. This new waterfront community will connect the surrounding Hill East neighborhood to the Anacostia waterfront via tree-lined public streets, recreational trails, and accessible waterfront parklands.
