On Thursday, Washington DC Mayor Adrian Fenty will release an RFP intended to develop three West End sites. The Mayor will hold a press conference at 10am to announce the that three large parcels - now the site of a fire station, library and special operations police unit - will be offered for development.
Details of the Request for Proposals have yet to be released, but the District seems willing to leave open the possibility of one developer for the three sites, or separate developers. It is not yet clear what uses, if any, the District will require of the developers, and whether the developers will be required to keep services on site or permitted to relocate the services.
According to Feras Sleiman, a spokesman with the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development, the most important criteria will be that each of the services be maintained "with no interruption." At least one site, the special operations division for White House detail, seems irrelevant to services for West End residents.
A press conference will be held on Thursday at 10:30am at the library.
