The National Capital Revitalization Corporation (NCRC) announced today that 5 development teams responded to its solicitation for development of Phase I of the McMillan sand filtration site along N. Capitol Street. The respondents were Horning Brothers, Republic Land Development, KSI Services, Inc., EYA and EastBanc, Inc. Each group has to have in place a development team consisting of Local Small Disadvantage Business Enterprises (LSDBEs) that must participate in the project’s equity stake in order to get the nod. Original plans incorporated massive mixed-use development, including 1200 residential units, with affordable housing, 100,000 s.f. of retail, a community center and "cultural center". No timeline has been set for choosing the developer.
