UrbanTurf recently got its hands on images of one of the biggest redevelopment projects in the works for upper Northwest DC.
The Georgetown Day School is planning to consolidate its lower, middle and upper schools on a new campus surrounding 4200 Davenport Street NW (map), as well as build two new residential buildings with retail space. The redevelopment will include the site of a nearby Safeway and Martens Volvo/Volkswagen dealership that the school purchased last year for $40 million.
The two residential buildings will rise to six and seven stories, and house between 270 and 290 units. A plaza called Davenport Steps will sit between the two buildings.
Alison Grasheim, the school’s spokeswoman, told UrbanTurf in May that the buildings will include 30,000 square feet of retail — including, hopefully, a replacement for the neighborhood’s popular Safeway, which this spring signed a two-year lease with the school but will eventually be razed.
Esocoff & Associates is the architect on the project, and JBG is advising the school as a development partner. The school is waiting until after its planned unit development (PUD) receives approval from the Zoning Commission to contract with a developer to build the site through a request-for-proposals (RFP) process. The PUD will be filed next month.
Despite plans for the PUD to be filed next month, there’s no timeline for construction, Grasheim told UrbanTurf earlier this year.
“Our plan is for the school to be complete by fall 2020,” she said. “The mixed use timeline is influenced more by market conditions, and we will know more about the exact timing as we go into the RFP process.”
