City Paper is not for tourists
Nine development teams have responded to the D.C. Housing Authority for solicitations to overhaul the agency’s North Capitol Street headquarters.
The Housing Authority released a request for qualifications on Aug. 5, seeking developers to convert the outdated building into a mixed-use facility. It will include at least 80,000 square feet of office space for the Housing Authority, plus a residential component including at least one-third affordable housing and additional mixed-use development. The decision to redevelop the site takes advantage of the recent boom in the NoMa neighborhood, making the underdeveloped property increasingly valuable.
The development teams that responded to the RFQ by the Sept. 9 deadline are:
CIM, The Michaels Development & City Interests
Jair Lynch Development Partners
North Capitol Venture, LLC (Republic Properties Corporation, The Community Builders, Inc., Dantes Partners and the Anacostia Economic Development Corp)
The Warrenton Group & Four Points
Trammell Crow Co
