From Councilmember Jim Graham:
“Today the Council approved the land swap between the Central Union Mission and the District involving a vacant parcel of land on lower Georgia Avenue and the old Gales School, downtown.
The Central Union Mission will relocate its homeless services program to the Gales School. This approval opens the way for much-needed, mixed-use, mixed-income development on the 3500 Block of Georgia Avenue.
This is exciting news for residents of the lower Georgia Avenue neighborhoods who have worked hard to revitalize the Georgia Avenue corridor with expanded retail and residential opportunities. With your support, we have moved a step closer to this goal.”
