The District government has scheduled a public meeting to present six proposals for the redevelopment of Parcel 42, the long-vacant, District-owned property at the northeast corner of 7th Street and R Streets, NW.  Notice of the meeting was provided in an email from ANC Commissioner Alex Padro.

The meeting will be held on Wednesday, November 14, 2012, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Shaw Library.

The proposals were received in response to a solicitation for the redevelopment of the property issued by the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development in April of this year.  According to the schedule included with the solicitation, the District expects to select a developer for the site in late fall of 2012.

Additional details on the site, the solicitation, and the developers who submited responses to the solicitation, can be viewed in an earlier post on this site.

The solicitation itself can be viewed after the jump.

  1. Wondering what is going on with ONE DC. Their web site is stale, like no one is taking care of it or not much going on. It hasn't had a tweet in many weeks. And this hearing isn't mentioned on web site though coming up soon. Plus, I heard a long time staffer left and was not replaced. Who is on staff there?
