2007 Foggy Bottom Campus Plan

George Statue

The 2007 Foggy Bottom Campus Plan provides a framework for development over the next twenty years, reflecting a long-term view of the campus in the context of its surrounding neighborhoods. The plan provides the predictability of identified sites, uses, and densities, along with the requisite level of flexibility necessary for such a long-term planning horizon.

The development sites included in the 2007 Foggy Bottom Campus Plan were individually evaluated based on existing campus land use patterns, suitability for redevelopment, and GW's overall forecasted space requirements. The selection of specific sites evolved throughout the community-based planning process, responding to various community and District concerns. As a result of these changes, limited new development is proposed along F and G Streets, and collections of historic and architecturally relevant buildings - originally contemplated for redevelopment - will now be maintained and adaptively reused.

Strategic Campus and Facilities Master Plan

Throughout the spring 2020 semester and early summer, the George Washington University led a collaborative process to develop its first-ever Strategic Campus and Facilities Master Plan.  While COVID-19 has required that most of our GW community members stay home to ensure our safety and well-being during this challenging time, the future of our campuses remains a university priority and we will continue to work on this initiative virtually.

The Strategic Campus and Facilities Master Plan will achieve two main goals:

  • It will articulate the vision and guiding principles for GW’s physical development planning, including design, architecture, space use, landscape, transportation, walkways and facilities.  It will establish standards for a unified campus identity that creates a sense of place and belonging on GW campuses and captures the university’s values.
  • Importantly, the plan will complement, and not replace, the 2007 Foggy Bottom Campus Plan and the 2010 Mount Vernon Campus Plan.
