ReCreative Spaces, Mid-City Development, local artists, and organizations will pARTtner to celebrate creativity and community through a series of interactive events, appropriate for all ages, starting in July.

In the NE DC neighborhood of Brentwood, the art program, part of a 3 year initiative, seeks to promote local engagement and neighborhood wellness, while also increasing curb appeal of a dilapidated shopping center along Rhode Island Avenue NE.

MID-CITY DEVELOPMENT offers a proud tradition of expertise in the development, acquisition, oversight, and management of multifamily rental housing. Unlike other real estate development and investment firms, MidCity focuses on long-term value and enduring relationships, proudly carrying on the tradition of strategic public-private partnerships and quality housing established by our esteemed founder, Eugene F. Ford. Founded 50 years ago, MidCity is a family-owned firm with a 40-year history of committed investment in the Rhode Island Avenue Corridor. Dedicated to RIA’s sustainable evolution, MidCity will remain invested in the community indefinitely. For more information on the new development, ‘RIA’, visit

ReCREATIVE SPACES designs places for communities to gather and share their passion for art of all kinds. We work with property owners, developers, city agencies, small businesses, and organizations to drive awareness and traffic into otherwise underutilized spaces. By offering site-specific programming and events we aim to cultivate artistic expression, build community, encourage social collaboration, and increase civic participation.
