Arts Walk at Brookland Works
For this mixed-use development, Maurice Walters Architect provided architectural design services for the Conceptual Design, Planned Unit Development (PUD) Approval, Schematic Design, and Design Development Phases. MWA also, in collaboration with the Architect of Record, aided in the Construction Document and Construction Administration Phases.
The project is located adjacent to the Brookland/Catholic University Metro Station and is part of a five-block mixed-use redevelopment of the Catholic University South Campus. Its program consists of below-grade parking, ground level retail, artists’ studios, and upper-level rental housing.
The central feature of the Arts Walk is a new pedestrian street that extends 8th Street, NE from Monroe Street to the Michigan Avenue viaduct. Ground-level artists' studios and retail space open onto the new pedestrian Arts Walk with a new public piazza situated at its north end.
