2106 Vermont Ave, NW
Update thanks to Laura for sending from SQUARE 134 ARCHITECTS:
“After 12 years of serving the local community of the U Street corridor, the bar at 2106 Vermont Ave NW will be replaced with a mixed-use development to match the fast-growing density of the area. The massing of the building is a result of creating a balance between the massive developments along Florida Ave and the smaller scale buildings on the block. The proposed building will consist of one retail space and nine residential units. Each unit will consist of four to six bedrooms and structured for communal living. Each resident will have their own private space and be a part of a communal living space within their unit. In addition to that, the building will have an amenity space on the rooftop to serve the entire building.”

6th and G Street, NW
” Metro today announced that it is offering its downtown DC headquarters site – home to the Jackson Graham Building – for development under a long-term ground lease. The offering is extremely rare in the DC real estate market, both in terms of location and size and represents a prime opportunity to re-develop the site for future high-density office, residential, hotel or mixed-use development. The 1.1-acre (48,401 square foot) site spans an entire city block and is located in the heart of the city’s Gallery Place retail and entertainment district, across the street from the Capital One Arena and the National Building Museum, and within a one-block walk to Gallery Place and Judiciary Square stations, providing convenient access to the Red, Green, and Yellow lines.

Because Metro would retain ownership of the property under a long-term lease, any development would have the potential to generate sustained revenue for Metro to support bus and rail operations, help keep fares affordable, and contribute to the transit agency’s long-term financial stability.

From Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton’s office:
“Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) today introduced a bill to sell the RFK stadium site, unused federal land, to the District of Columbia for fair market value. Currently, the RFK stadium site, which is 190 acres, is the largest track of unused land in the District. Norton’s work in making land owned or controlled by the federal government available to the District has been essential in revitalizing D.C. neighborhoods, such as the Wharf, the Capitol Riverfront, and Walter Reed.
