Store Front Improvement: Under a grant from the DC Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD,) ADC works with owners of Anacostia businesses and properties to design new facades or upgrade facades for their buildings. This is part of an effort to improve both the physical aspects of Anacostia and the negative perception of the neighborhood.
Business Development Projects: ADC operates The HIVE designed to help replace traditional office space with money-saving alternatives. The HIVE office solution provides commercial office space, conference rooms by the hour, remote and on-site receptionist services, capable and professional administrative support and much more. The HIVE features a range of office space options on a “pay for only for what office space and office services you use.” The facility is located in Anacostia on two floors at 2027 MLK, Jr. Ave. SE. The space is located in a federal and District of Columbia government enterprise community, as well as a federal Small Business Administration- HUB Zone. The facility is ideally located within a short walk from the metro, bus stop at the door, easy access to downtown, the Navy Yard, the new Department of Homeland Security facility and Capitol Hill. There is free abundant street parking. The HIVE serves as a one-stop-shop for entrepreneurial and business training for East of River and DC small businesses and artists. The HIVE provides a variety of business planning, marketing and administrative services.
