Town Hall Education Arts Recreation Campus (THEARC) is developed by a nonprofit called Building Bridges Across the River (BBAR) to address the economic, academic and social challenges facing families living east of the Anacostia River, in wards 7 and 8 – the poorest and most underserved communities in Washington, D.C. The development was the third phase of THEARC which consists of two parts: construction of a new 92,000 square foot building and renovation of a suite in one of the existing buildings. In total, the Phase III expansion project will cost $34 million. The new building was home to four partner organizations: Children’s National Health System/Children’s Health Fund, the Bishop Walker School for Boys, The Phillips Collection and AppleTree Institute for Education Innovation. The new building will also include a black box theater and a community meeting room managed by BBAR. During the expansion, the suite previously used by the Children’s Health Center in an existing building was renovated into a commercial teaching kitchen and café.
