On Tuesday night, ANC 6B voted to unanimously support Donatelli Development and Blue Skye’s proposal to redevelop a portion of Hill East’s Reservation 13, according to a tweet from ANC commissioner Brian Flahaven.
#ANC6B votes unanimously tonight to support moving forward on Donatelli/Blue Skye proposal for phase I of Hill East/Res 13 development— Brian Flahaven (@BFlahaven) June 12, 2013
Though the redevelopment of the entire 67-acre site has been up for negotiation for many years, the city most recently sought proposals for a small portion of the site on the western end, close to the Stadium Armory Metro station (map).
The Donatelli/ Blue Skye team was the only development group to respond. Their two-building plan calls for 353 apartments, 20,000 square feet of ground floor retail and 225 underground parking spaces. There will also be a public plaza, and the team is hoping to attract neighborhood-serving retailers. More than 30 percent of the units will be set aside for tenants making 60 percent of the Area Median Income of less.
DMPED is now assessing community opinion to determine whether or not to move forward. Presumably, the ANC’s opinion will be carefully considered by DMPED. Though residents have expressed frustration that the city scuttled earlier plans for one master plan, many are eager for the site to be developed, one way or another. In a previous meeting with the community, Chris Donatelli stated that he hopes that their development will “catalyze” development for the rest of the site, reported Flahaven.
If approved, the project would break ground in 12 to 18 months and take two years to complete.
