MLK Gateway is a two-phase project that will form the gateway from downtown DC to an emerging and revitalized Anacostia, connecting the neighborhood's two major commercial corridors, Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue and Good Hope Road. This project is a partnership between The Menkiti Group and DMPED.
Phase I is a $22.3MM project anchored by the headquarters of DC-based minority-owned tech company, Enlightened Inc. Enlightened will operate a tech incubator and Keller Williams Capital Properties, the 3rd largest DC metro-area brokerage by volume, will operate a real estate training academy. Street-level retail may feature food- and community-focused businesses. The second phase will be anchored with DC's Department of Housing and Community Development.
