The District of Columbia announced last week a delay in its procurement of bids to redo the historic Gales School. Just three weeks ago the District issued a Request for Offers for the property, located near Union Station and once nearly turned into a homeless shelter. The new timeline extends the submission deadline from February 16th to March 18th. Asked about the reason for the delay and whether any applications had been received, staff at the Department of Real Estate Services would only point out that they have a website to answer questions, a likely indication that they have not yet been overwhelmed with interest.
The city had been close to a deal with the Central Union Mission, which wanted to use the property for a homeless shelter, but the agreement was torpedoed by the ACLU.
