Hine Junior High School

The Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development (DMPED) issued a Solicitation for Offers for the redevelopment of Hine Junior High School. This school drew 11 bidders from around the country. After a series of community meetings and developer presentations, the District selected Stanton-EastBanc based on several criteria: vision, past performance, financial capacity and community feedback.

Three years after being awarded the project through a competitive solicitation process, Stanton-Eastbanc, LLC received approval from the DC Zoning Commission to move forward with the redevelopment of the Hine School in 2012. Currently, the site is clear of all previous improvements.
Stanton-Eastbanc along with DMPED held a ceremonial groundbreaking on the Hine School site on July 17, 2015 to celebrate the imminent construction of the mixed use development.
