The District, through the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development (“DMPED”), seeks to redevelop Lot 0083 of Square 0559, a parcel of land located at New Jersey Ave NW, also referred to as the L Street & New Jersey Avenue redevelopment. The Parcel is approximately 15,000 square feet in size and sits within the Northwest One area of Washington, D.C., clustered between Mount Vernon Triangle and NoMA.

L Street and New Jersey Avenue is currently the site of a District-owned surface parking lot. The site lies just northeast of the New Jersey Avenue and K Street NW intersection and directly across the Northwest One Library and the Walker Jones Education Campus. The site is to be redeveloped in partnership with the adjacent site owner, The Southern Baptist Church (the “Church”). The Church has operated from this site since 1931, ministering to the needs of the congregation, as well as the community.

To facilitate equitable access to District development projects, DMPED incorporated a prioritization for teams that maximize, by percentage of ownership and control, entities designated as Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) and Residence Owned Business (ROB), or any entities (including non-profits and community institutions) led by, or majority controlled by, individuals designated as socially disadvantaged under the Small Business Administration’s (SBA) definition.

This redevelopment will be part of DMPED’s Faith-Based Housing initiative, in partnership with the Church, and anchored by the Church’s new place of worship. The project plan should maximize family sized affordable housing units, community serving retail, density, CBE participation, local hiring through First Source, sustainability, and transit-oriented development.
