On Tuesday, Mayor Muriel Bowser announced that the city had selected two teams to redevelop the remainder of the District-owned site known as Reservation 13.
The Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development (DMPED) released a request for proposals (RFP) last fall for eight parcels at the former DC General Hospital/homeless shelter, divided across two bundles southeast of 19th Street and Massachusetts Avenue SE (map).
The proposal from Donatelli Development, Blue Skye Development and GTM Architects was picked to redevelop Bundle 1, a collection of five parcels totaling 221,800 square feet. As outlined to the public earlier this year, this proposal would deliver 907 residential units across five by-right buildings. Half of the rental units will be affordable at 30% and 50% of area median income (AMI), and half of the for-sale units will be affordable at 30% and 60% of AMI. The development would also have a linear park dedicated to Robert F. Kennedy, and two of the buildings would have ground-floor retail.
The proposal from Frontier Development and Hospitality Group, BRP Companies, A. Wash Associates, USP, and H2 Design Build was picked for Bundle 2, a diagonal array of three parcels totaling over 275,000 square feet of space. There would be approximately 1,000 rental units built under this proposal, of which the majority would be affordable. Another 126 units would be for-sale. This proposal also includes a hotel with 150 extended-stay suites and 60,000 square feet of retail, including a grocery store. The team also got permission from Relisha Rudd's family to name their proposed central park after the seven year-old girl who went missing from the DC General shelter seven years ago.
If the DC Council approves the contracts next year, construction on the above proposals could begin in 2023.
