In May 2008, Catholic University announced that it was partnering with Abdo Development to redevelop a nine acre site near the Brookland/CUA Metro station on Michigan Avenue.

Now the Washington Post is reporting that Abdo’s plans will likely sail through the Zoning Commission process.

The development proposal “calls for building 825 residential units and 85,000 square feet of retail on nine acres of university-owned land along Michigan Avenue and Monroe Street,” according to the Post. (The development is shown in an older rendering above—-I’m trying to get some new ones.)

All told, Abdo says his project will probably take around eight years.
