Demolition at the long-delayed Hine Junior High School redevelopment will start later this month once hazardous materials have been removed from the Eastern Market site. The demolition will take approximately six weeks, Eastbanc’s Matt Harris tells UrbanTurf, at which point excavation can commence, followed by vertical construction later this year. This will put the project on schedule to deliver in June 2017, Harris confirms.
Earlier this year, the redevelopment of the former junior high school near Eastern Market got the go-ahead when the DC Court of Appeals denied a rehearing of a lawsuit against developer Stanton-Eastbanc.
The development was in limbo for several years due to a legal challenge by a group of neighbors who oppose the project. The mixed-use plan for the site (map) includes 162 residential units, 61,000 square feet of retail space, 150,000 square feet of office space, a plaza and underground parking. It would also include some space for the neighborhood’s beloved market, but not as much as what’s there now.
Stanton-Eastbanc’s Planned Unit Development (PUD) for the site was approved by the Zoning Commission in 2012.
