The Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development has picked the team led by Jarvis Company and Stonebridge Carras to redevelop the historic Crummell School in Ivy City, and the team of Ditto Residential, Group360 Real Estate Advisors and Irving Development to redevelop Shaw’s Parcel 42.

The plans for Ivy City Partners’s proposal to redevelop the Crummell School at 1900 Gallaudet Street NE (map) include delivery of a 5,000 square-foot restaurant to the corner of Kendall and Okie Streets, a commercial space on the opposite end of the site along Okie Street, and townhouses along Gallaudet Street. There would also be apartment units along Okie Street and atop the townhouses and commercial space on the lower floors. The Crummell School would be restored into a community center and 28 spaces of underground parking would be accessible from Kendall Street. ProFish’s seafood wholesale business is currently east of the site at Fenwick Street; this proposal would give them a vast amount of space on the basement level to expand their storage and processing.

In total, the new development would deliver 320 rental units, of which more than sixty would be affordable, 35,000 square feet of industrial space and 22,000 square feet of community-serving retail.

The proposal for Parcel 42, a District-owned parcel of land at 7th and R Street NW (map) across from the Shaw Library, includes a seven-story mixed-use development which would contain 8,000 square feet of neighborhood-serving retail and 118 apartment units. Thirty percent of the units would be set aside as affordable housing, and most of the apartments would be family-sized. There will also be a public park on the site. The project is designed by Dep Designs and R. McGhee and Associates.

“The successful OurRFP process ensure that Parcel 42 and Crummell School will be thoughtfully developed and reflect these neighborhood’s interests and needs,” said Mayor Muriel Bowser in a release. “Ultimately, the selected proposals will expand our shared priorities as a District: affordable housing, small business growth, and job opportunities that generate revenues we can invest back into these neighborhoods.”
