Last week, UrbanTurf covered five of the proposals pitched to redevelop the Langston-Slater Campus in Truxton Circle. Today, we take a look at the remaining five.
DC's Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development released a request for proposals (RFP) for the city-owned site of the Slater and John Mercer Langston Elementary School buildings at 33-45 P Street NW (map) last summer. The selected development team will also have to honor non-profit Associates for Renewal in Education's current lease in Slater through 2030.
Condos and a Land Trust
CSG Urban Partners is teaming up with both newer and more established entities for this proposal, including the Mt. Lebanon Community Development Corporation, Volunteers of America, Habitat for Humanity, and the Douglass Community Land Trust. The project, dubbed "Lebanon Village", would be a 55-unit mixed-income development, with market rate condos, as well as units affordable to households earning up to 30%, 50%, and 80% of area median income (AMI). Unique to this proposal are the 12 for-sale units in the infill building between the school, where Habitat for Humanity and the Land Trust will keep some units affordable in perpetuity. Designed by R. McGhee and Associates, the project would also include 21 surface parking spaces.
All Affordable with Infill
Neighborhood Development Company is throwing its hat in the ring with an all-affordable proposal. This project would also include an infill building, and deliver 82 studio to two-bedroom units for households at the 30% and 50% AMI levels. The development would also include 11 surface parking spaces. Cunningham Quill is the designer.
Multiple-Choice Incubator Space
Northern Real Estate Urban Ventures is helming this proposal, which would construct an infill building attached to the Langston school building. The Langston building would be converted into incubator space, and there are three options for the residential portion that would deliver either 66, 53, or 59 units and 3,000 square feet of community space. Torti Gallas Urban is the architect.
Affordable One-Bedrooms for Seniors
"The Langston" development would add a story to the Langston school building and deliver 56 units for seniors. The apartments would be one-bedrooms (with the exception of one studio) and would be affordable at the 30%, 50%, and 60% AMI levels. The development would include 3,900 square feet of open space and would require the site be rezoned from RF-1 (residential flats) to MU-3B (moderate-density mixed-use). There would also be 12 parking spaces. Banneker Communities, HEP Development, Lopez and Associates, and Medina Life Community Development Corporation are the developers and dp+partners and Moody Nolan are the architects.
Hospitality School and an Art Gallery
Frontier Development and Hospitality Group is taking the lead on this proposal, which would deliver 91 affordable units and arts and workforce development space. The residential units would include 29 three-bedrooms and a four-bedroom, and 15 of the units would be women's permanent supportive units for Open Arms Housing. The Arena Social Arts Club nonprofit would provide an art gallery and an indoor/outdoor café, and Frontier would also run a hospitality school out of the development. H2 Design Build is a co-developer and Bonstra|Haresign is the architect.
