Anacostia House

About the Project

The Menkiti Group partnered with H2 Design, a black-owned CBE, on a Ward 8 renovation project featuring 100% Ward 8 subcontractors. 


Located at 1916 13th St SE in the heart of historic Anacostia, this renovation project, coined the Anacostia House, is an exciting story of renewal for a dilapidated building.


As a true testament to our dedication to supporting residents and businesses in Anacostia, every sub-contractor working on this project is a Ward 8 business. Stay tuned for more details on the Anacostia House coming soon.
