“Roadside Development is presenting its latest plans for the Fannie Mae redevelopment next Thursday, Oct. 26, from 7-9 p.m. at the McLean Gardens community center ballroom at 3811 Porter St. NW.
Roadside will show its “conceptual design,” which includes building locations and heights. Roadside will seek approval in November for this conceptual design from the Historic Preservation Review Board.
Next Thursday’s community meeting is being organized by Advisory Neighborhood Commission 3C. We are seeking input from residents before we make a recommendation about the conceptual design to the Historic Preservation Review Board.
You can get a sneak peek at Roadside’s conceptual design here.”
