From a press release:

“Howard University is partnering with Urban Investment Partners (UIP) and Neighborhood Development Corporation (NDC) to redevelop two former dormitories into residential apartments. The UIP/NDC partnership closed on the Carver Hall transaction on August 18th and subsequently finalized closing on Slowe Hall on September 1st. The partnership will renovate and convert the two structures into 162 modern rental apartments.

Howard University’s Real Estate Development and Capital Asset Management team issued a Request for Proposals in early 2017 and selected UIP/NDC after a highly competitive process that attracted several local and regional developers. The University will maintain fee simple ownership of the property through an innovative, long-term capitalized ground lease structure and will participate in the upside generated by the project over the term. The full project cost, including a capitalized ground lease payment and redevelopment, is $50 million. Negotiated terms include significant minority participation, ranging from equity partners to trade contractors. The agreement also provides scholarships and internship opportunities for Howard University students.

Located in the LeDroit Park neighborhood of Washington, DC, George Washington Carver Hall (211 Elm Street, NW) and Lucy Diggs Slowe Hall (1919 3rd Street, NW) were built in 1942 to accommodate War Department workers. For more than 60 years, the buildings have served as student dormitories for the University. Both are currently unoccupied. (more…)

Thanks to Andrew for sending:

“Looks like DCity Smokehouse is doing a major overhaul of their outdoor seating area. Installing previous paving, minor landscaping, and tree planting. Per the Bartender, it won’t be open for a while, “probably for next spring”.

Based on the tree protection, E&S controls, and Miss Utility markings dated 8/28, it looks like they will break ground any day.

There is a plan hanging on the wall inside. Too bad we have to wait but should be worth it!”

“Dear PoPville,

Last Friday sometime during the workday somebody climbed in through one of our street level windows on the backside of our house. They went through our entire basement, a room on the main floor, and our living room. The perpetrator stole my roommates laptop, some jewelry, clothes, odd knick-knacks and even tried on one of her bathing suits (taking it out of the amazon box and leaving it inside out).

If anyone saw anything please let us know/ a good reminder to neighbors to lock all their windows!”
