The shortlisted teams vying to redevelop the parcel unveiled their plans to the public in September.
The plans from the development team of PN Hoffman, AHC Inc., Paramount Development, E.R. Bacon Development and CityPartners include 443 rental apartments, a black box theater, artist spaces and 22,500 square feet of retail. 133 of the apartments would be affordable — 34 units for those making 30 percent of the area median income (AMI) and 99 units for those making 50 percent AMI. The development architect is Torti Gallas Urban, and the cultural partners on the proposal are Forum Theatre, Cultural DC, Arena Stage, and Georgetown University LAB.
From the letter of support to the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development (DMPED):
“ANC-6D believes that the Hoffman/AHC plan provides a higher number of units at lower AMI levels – one quarter of affordable units 30% – and three quarters of affordable units at 50% – which more closely approximates where the real need for true affordable housing exists in our neighborhood. In addition, nearly one third of the units in the proposed building are either on bedroom/den or two bedroom units which provide greater opportunities for the growing number of families who wish to locate in Southwest.”
DMPED will choose one project from the three development presentations within the next few months. When DMPED issued the Request For Proposals, it noted that uses should include mixed-income housing and ground floor community-serving retail or municipal services.
