Near the Washington Navy Yard a broad new development project combines historic preservation with construction of new retail, housing and office space. Developer Forrest City was charged with incorporating a public park on the Anacostia riverfront that would attract a wide range of visitors and be self-sustaining.
Town Square was called in to review the design, cost-out operations and lay the groundwork for programming the space. We determined how best to fund the ongoing operations, develop a quality program, and address issues of governance.
The Diner en Blanc organizers had little doubt that the beautiful Yards Park would be a great venue for their event. The Capitol Riverfront BID, which manages the space, welcomes quality public programs that contribute to the maintenance of the space.
