D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray is unveiling plans for a new pavilion on the campus of St. Elizabeth's Hospital in southeast Washington.

The East Gateway Pavilion will be a place to dine and will also offer a farmers' market and other weekend arts and cultural events. It's part of a massive redevelopment project on the St. Elizabeth's campus.

The new pavilion should be ready by next spring when nearly 4,000 U.S. Coast Guard employees are scheduled to arrive at the St. Elizabeth's campus for the opening of the Coast Guard's new headquarters, according to a statement from the mayor's office. The new pavilion is expected to cost $5 million.

The Coast Guard headquarters and pavilion are just part of the development plans for the St. Elizabeth's campus. Earlier this month, the District selected Microsoft and two other tech firms to submit proposals for high-tech developments at the site.
