Yesterday, two development teams threw their hats in the ring to develop a 15,000 s.f. parcel at 6925-6929 Georgia Avenue, NW, across from the Walter Reed Army Medical Center. The District released an RFP in October, looking for a group to plan, finance, build and operate a project that may include mixed-income housing, community-serving retail, and cultural amenities. The vacant lot is zoned for R-5-B, with height limits set at 50 feet and a maximum lot occupancy of 60%.
According to Sean Madigan, Communications Director for the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development, only two teams met the 3 PM deadline on Friday. Madigan indicated the project managers for the site would be moving quickly to review the applications and announcements about the proposals might become public as soon as this week.
