St. Elizabeths East Gateway Pavilion is a 16,300 square foot open air structure providing a venue for casual dining, a farmers’ market and other community, cultural and arts events. It is located at the center of the District of Columbia’s Congress Heights neighborhood in Ward 8. The newly developed pavilion is the first step of the implementation of the city’s master plan vision to transform the 180-acre Saint Elizabeths East campus into a mixed-use development. Spread over a two-acre plot of the campus, the Pavilion creates an instantly iconic, visible and welcoming view into the site, particularly from the vantage points that reflect the existing and anticipated movements of people from different areas of the neighborhood. Forming a dramatic backdrop to the plaza, the main area of the pavilion is a 24-foot high space filled with modular booths convenient to where food trucks access the site.
