“The District is pleased to have received proposals from such an established group of developers interested in continuing the revitalization of the Shaw neighborhood,” said Deputy Mayor Hoskins. “We look forward to engaging the community as we move towards selecting a winning team and closing out the solicitation process.”
The short-list teams are:

The shortlisted teams will present their proposals to the community at 6:30 p.m. June 30, 2014, at the Immaculate Conception Church auditorium, 1315 8th Street NW. A “best and final” proposal will then be requested from each shortlisted team before a final selection is made by the summer of 2014.
The District sought development plans that reflected the importance of the site to the surrounding community and that met the objectives of consistency with the District’s Comprehensive Plan for mixed-use transit-oriented development, high architectural design quality that maximizes density and is economically viable, a residential component containing affordable housing and neighborhood serving retail.
