NoMa Meander

The Meander is envisioned as a set of pedestrian-retail promenades between the “superblocks” between M Street and Patterson Street NE.

The Meander is envisioned as a set of pedestrian-retail promenades between the “superblocks” between M Street and Patterson Street NE. These large blocks are an artifact of the L’Enfant Plan street grid, which the Meander breaks up through a mid-block alley system. The 2006 NoMa Vision Plan and Development Strategy suggested the inclusion of a midblock alley along this space, in part to relieve pressure to create curb cuts on First Street NE for garage and loading dock access to the buildings that line it.

The latest iteration of the design for the next phase of the Meander is in the hands of the Skanska construction team. The project will be constructed as part of Skanska’s work on the OZMA development at 44 M Street NE.

The next phase of the Meander is slated to be built as part of the MRP development adjacent to the site of the former DC Housing Authority headquarters.
