Blue Skye Development has begun redeveloping a 26-unit building in the Deanwood area. The project is on a formerly District-owned site, and one component of the Lincoln Heights New Community.

Construction crews expect to wrap up the project by summer 2010, states a press release from the mayor’s office.

Slowly but surely, dribbles of development are occurring on the various New Communities happening around the city.

Ultimately, we’re supposed to see four New Communities: Barry Farm/Park Chester/Wade Road; Lincoln Heights/Richardson Dwellings; Northwest One; Park Morton.

Recently, Northwest One, near North Capitol Street a few blocks north of Union Station, debuted its Walker Jones Education Campus. We’re supposed to learn about Park Morton’s development any day now.

Each Community centers around an area once loaded with decrepit, crime-ridden public housing that will hopefully be transformed into “healthy, vibrant communities for current and future residents,” according to the city.
