Reeves CMC Venture to Redevelop Reeves Center of Municipal Affairs Site
The Reeves CMC Venture team has been selected by Mayor Muriel Bowser and the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development to redevelop the Frank D. Reeves Center of Municipal Affairs site in Washington, DC.
The project aims to honor the community’s history as Black Broadway and the center of African American business, arts, and entertainment. Reeves CMC Venture, consisting of CSG Urban Partners, Capri Investment Group, and MRP Realty, will lead the redevelopment effort, which includes the new headquarters of the NAACP, municipal office space, a hotel, and both affordable and market-rate housing.
The project will also feature cultural institutions such as the Alvin Ailey American Dance School and the Washington Jazz Arts Institute, as well as a restaurant by celebrity chef Carla Hall. Construction is slated to begin in 2025.
