Whitman-Walker and Reid Rodell, an event management and consulting firm, launched “The Corner at Whitman-Walker” last week. An event rental and community gathering space, The Corner at Whitman-Walker is located at 1701 14th St. NW.  

The Corner was originally the entrance and lobby of The Whitman-Walker Clinic. The clinic previously served LGBTQ and HIV positive members of the community who needed a place to receive care. Architect Annabelle Selldorf designed the space to become a location for cultures and communities to get together.  

Rental proceeds will go toward Whitman-Walker operations. The capacity at The Corner is 125 guests and rates will vary based on dates, event needs and time needed in the space. Non-profit groups get 20 percent off.  

“As a minority- and LGBTQ-owned business, we are honored to get an opportunity to partner with Whitman-Walker,” said Anthony Rodell, co-principal, and chief architect officer of Reid Rodell. “Their mission and our work align in a seamless and beneficial way.”
