It seems like every time you turn around, the District government is developing yet another piece of forgotten waterfront property. The Washington Post says that the “Hill East Waterfront” is the “last unclaimed parcel on Washington’s waterfront.” For now, maybe.
That totally ambiguously named chunk of land is located just south of RFK stadium; It includes 67 acres total.
In early November, the District announced that four development teams had submitted proposals for the property. Today, the Washington Post writes, is the last day for community members to chime in on these plans. Mayor Adrian Fenty is expected to make his choice this Spring.
The four development groups are:*
· HDG Waterfront Partners, led by Hunt Development and Mosaic Urban Partners. The team includes Abdo Development, the William C. Smith Cos.; EYA Development; and the Jair Lynch Cos.
· New Hill East Joint Venture, led by Urban Atlantic. The team includes Vornado/Charles E. Smith; Trammell Crow; Elm Street Development; Blue Skye Development; Brickstone Development; Eagle Vision Ventures; Dynamis Advisors; Sun Edison and Ellis Denning Development.
· Hill East Development, led by the Franklin L. Haney Co. The team includes Donatelli Hill East, LLC; Chapman Development; Combined Properties; Banneker Ventures; Tudor Holdings.
*A special, special hat tip to the Capitol Hill Restoration Society, which has posted pdfs of these proposals on its website. The names are from an earlier press release from the Office of Planning and Economic Development.
