Good Hope Road in Anacostia

Good Hope Road in Anacostia

Two vacant lots and four vacant storefronts currently sit at the corner of Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue and Good Hope Road SE in Anacostia, but by 2020, the block is expected to look very different. The city recently chose a team of two minority-run development partners to transform the block into a center of economic activity, flush with retail space, restaurants, and even an incubator that will support community-based startups. Kojo explores what the development will mean for Ward 8 and the city as a whole.
