The EaDo district is comprised of 213-acres of current and former industrial land uses and office users. Increasingly residential and retail uses have been eyeing the area for redevelopment opportunities. At BIG RED DOG, we’re working with our clients on due diligence and massing plans on several tracts in the district.
