Renovation of a Senior Housing Building in Washington, DC


Working with So Others Might Eat (SOME), Miner Feinstein renovated Building 17 on the historic Walter Reed Medical Campus as part of the overall revitalization, creation of a new community. The renovation consisted of upgrades throughout, the creation of 41 personal living quarters for seniors including UFAS (accessible dwelling units), the creation of community and common area  spaces, and new exterior communal spaces, among other items.


Like all SOME properties, the goal of the project was to maintain quality housing options for their residents while providing critical support in the programs and activities that are planned for the residents, both on and off site.


This renovation is just a small part of a major renovation taking place on the campus. Construction was completed in 2021.
