Whitman-Walker Health this week announced it has named Selldorf Architects to design the redevelopment of the Elizabeth Taylor Medical Center site in the 14th Street corridor.
The site, located at 1701 14th St., N.W., houses select services and staff space to support the health care operations at Whitman-Walker’s other sites, as well as administrative departments. These functions will continue to operate out of the Elizabeth Taylor building for the next several years.
That space will give way to a full-block project to include space for Whitman-Walker as well as ground-floor retail and residential units in the mixed-use development.
“We are thrilled that the redevelopment of the 1701 14th St. site will be the first design in the nation’s capital for Annabelle Selldorf and her team,” said Don Blanchon, Whitman-Walker’s executive director. “We knew we needed an architect who would take the time to truly understand Whitman-Walker’s unique place within metro D.C.’s LGBTQ community and our unwavering commitment to our patients.”
