After months of consideration, DC’s Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development has chosen a team to redevelop Shaw’s Parcel 42. The winning proposal for the city-owned parcel at 7th and R Street NW (map) comes from the Tensquare Group and Chapman Development, ANC 6E commissioner Kevin Chapple told UrbanTurf.
The proposal from Shaw 42 Developers, comprised of TenSquare, Chapman and R2L:Architects, consists of a 105-unit residential building with approximately 5,000 square feet of ground-floor retail. The building, which will have a mix of studio, one- and two-bedrooms, will be “highly amenitized”, with a pool and green space on the roof. Approximately 20 percent of the apartments will be set aside as affordable. The building design incorporates many materials, with an industrial look on the corner, and gray and red alternating vertical portions on the side.

The announcement of the winning proposal came two months after the city whittled the original six proposals presented for the site in November down to three. The other two in contention were those from Baywood Hotels and Dantes Partners and Neighborhood Development Corporation. (A full rundown of the proposals can be found here.)
No timeline has been released for what lies next for Shaw 42’s proposal, but we will keep you in the loop.
