DC Selects Land Trust Team to Redevelop Langston-Slater Campus
The city-owned site that was the subject of DC's first EquityRFP may be redeveloped using an equity-focused model.
On Tuesday, Mayor Bowser's office and the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development (DMPED) selected a co-development team for the Langston-Slater school campus in Truxton Circle: a team that includes the Douglass Community Land Trust (Douglass CLT).
The plan put forth by the Douglass CLT team would deliver 55 mixed-income units, including some for-sale units and units with permanent affordability, to the site of the Slater and John Mercer Langston Elementary School buildings at 33-45 P Street NW (map). More specifically, there will be 43 rental apartments and 12 infill townhouses, along with 21 surface parking spaces. Roughly 49% of the units in the "Lebanon Village" development will be affordable to households earning up to 30%, 50%, and 80% of area median income.
Other development team members include CSG Urban Partners, the Mt. Lebanon Community Development Corporation, Volunteers of America, and Habitat for Humanity; R. McGhee and Associates is the architect. It is not yet clear what method Douglass CLT will use to maintain perpetual affordable units at the site, although methods include deed restricted covenants and land purchase-and-lease-back.
“We know that this historic site is good hands with the Douglass Community Land Trust and that they will oversee a project that meets the vision of the community and empowers residents for years to come,” Mayor Bowser said in a statement. “We are proud to be working with a community organization that is helping to preserve our city’s history and culture by ensuring families of all backgrounds and income levels have a future in Washington, DC.”
The other proposals for the site are available here and here.
