The Georgetown Day School officially filed the planned unit development (PUD) for the consolidation of all its schools in upper Northwest on Wednesday.
The PUD outlines the consolidation of the lower, middle and upper schools on a new campus surrounding 4200 Davenport Street NW (map), the construction of two new residential buildings with retail space, and a plaza called Davenport Steps that will sit between the residential buildings. 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 lower, middle and upper schools will be combined into one new building, that will house a theater, a gallery, and athletic facilities, with a field on the roof. The two residential buildings will rise to six and seven stories, and house between 270 and 290 units with two floors of below-grade parking. There will be approximately 30,000 square feet of retail that is meant for a mid-sized grocery store. The neighborhood’s popular Safeway signed a two-year lease with the school earlier this year, 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 the PUD receives approval from the Zoning Commission to contract with a developer to build the site through a request-for-proposals (RFP) process.
As for the project timeline, Georgetown Day School intends to begin construction on the school portion in Summer 2018, and that is expected to take about two years. The mixed-use portion will likely move forward on a different timeline that will be dictated by market conditions.
