Last Friday, we outlined the six proposals competing for the redevelopment plan for the space at 1300 H Street NE in the heart of the H Street Corridor (map). The city wants to see a mixed-use, community-friendly project at the address, which is currently occupied by R.L. Christian Library.
We polled readers on their favorites and got a huge response, with over 1,150 total votes being cast.
So, what do readers want?
The winning proposal went to the folks behind Fundrise (also the poll experts who created Popularise), whose project outlined a plan for 30 condos with a local food market and community buy-in. Coming in at a relatively close second was the proposal from Neighborhood Development Company, who committed to bringing a YES! Organic Market to the space and hopes to build one-bedrooms on the larger size for the residential space.
Finally, coming in third with a respectable 15 percent of the votes was Argos’ plan for family-sized two- and three-bedroom units and a police substation in the ground floor.
The city will be choosing their favorite from among these six over the coming months.
