Rendering of proposed project.
In July, DC’s Department of Housing and Community Development put a whopping 27 city-owned properties and lots out for bid. The gem of them all, at least for developers, may well be a seven-lot site at Florida Avenue and Q Streets NW on the edge of Bloomingdale and Truxton Circle, as Housing Complex reported at the time.
One of the first developers to publicly angle for the site — proposals aren’t due for another month — is Maedwell. Maedwell principal, Syga Thomas, told UrbanTurf that his plans for the site include 40 apartments or condos and 7,000 square feet of retail. Thomas met with neighbors in the community on Monday night to present the firm’s plans. Maedwell is teaming up with E&G Group and Bonstra Haresign Architects on the proposal.
The site at 4-14 Q Street and 14-16 Florida Avenue (map) is just off North Capitol Street NW, where Maedwell has had its headquarters for seven years.
“For us, the fact that we’ve been in the community for so long and this is really right on our doorstep, this was something we really couldn’t turn down,” Thomas said. “It’s a great opportunity to put our name on something in our backyard.”
Keep in mind that Maedwell is likely one of many developers bidding on the coveted site, so stay tuned when decisions are made next month.
