Yesterday, the city released a list of which development teams submitted proposals for some of the District’s many vacated school buildings.
Stevens Elementary School, located at 1050 21ST St in the West End, received the second largest number of bids, behind Hine Junior High School on Capitol Hill (nine vs. ten). The groups appear to include a garden variety of commercial and residential real estate investors (with one noticeable exception).
The Stevens building was zoned “for major business and employment centers of medium/high density development, including office, retail, housing, and mixed uses,” according to solicitation documents.
The actual proposals will not go online, according to Sean Metcalf, spokesperson for the mayor’s office.
“We don’t release these docs as a practice because they are full of competitive info. We did however, encourage all bidders to reach out to community groups to explain their plans,” Metcalf wrote in an e-mail. “At the same time, we will host community meetings for each site where the dev[elopment] teams will make their presentations to the community stakeholders. Those meetings should start in several weeks.”
Here’s the list:
1. Stoladi Property Group/KG Project Management/Davis Construction
2. Capitol Hill BID/Ready Willing & Working Inc. (Ready Willing & Working Inc. is a non-profit that offers street cleaning/maintenance job-training to men, who are homeless, were incarcerated, or have a history of substance abuse. )

4. EQR (Equity Residential)/ Neighborhood Development Corporation
