More retail is coming to the Southeast quadrant, and it looks like one iconic building will be the site of it. The "Anacostia" building located at 1117 Good Hope Road SE is set on becoming a Walgreens, according to Congress Heights on the Rise. Roughly 10 years ago, there was a proposal to turn the property into a jazz club, but those plans fell through.
Currently, the building is in a state of disrepair, but the redevelopment will bring interior and exterior alterations to the property.
There are no reports yet on when the Walgreens will deliver or if the "Anacostia" sign will remain.
