Pennsylvania Ave. & D St., Washington, DC
Eastern Market Metro Park
Located in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Ward 6, Eastern Market is one of the few historic public market buildings left in Washington, DC. The surrounding neighborhood, which also houses Barracks Row Main Street, is composed of six disparate parcels under complex ownership and management. In 2013-14, Barracks Row Main Street commissioned a community-led master plan that called for public space improvements surrounding the Eastern Market Metro.
Moya Design Partners worked with DGS, DPR, LandDesign, Inc., Keystone Plus Construction, DDOT, DOEE, OP, DC Water, CFA, HPO, NCPC, NPS, and the community to refine and implement the plan for a safe and thriving “Town Square” for historic Capitol Hill. The finished design features a state-of-the-art playground with splash pad, shade structures, a pavilion requested by the community, improved tree canopy, rain gardens, stormwater management, and landscape improvements along Pennsylvania Avenue.
