DC’s Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development (DMPED) is in the early stages of fully developing a city-owned lot at the southeast corner of 7th and R Streets NW. The City recently solicited a Request for Expressions of Interest (RFEI) for the development of the lot, dubbed Parcel 42, which is 17,008 square feet.

Six bidders met the qualifications in the RFEI, and these developers will present their proposals to the community on Wednesday, November 14, 2012. The public is invited to attend, listen to the presentations and ask questions at the end of the program.
The DMPED requested that bidders design a development that has the following:
  • High architectural design quality that maximizes density
  • Economic viability
  • Mixed-income residential rental component that maximizes affordability based upon the District’s contribution of land value
  • Local and small business neighborhood serving retail
  • A transit oriented development that reflects the project’s adjacency to the Shaw/Howard Metro Station
The presentations will be made from 6 pm until 8:30 pm at the Watha T. Daniel/Shaw Library (1630 7th Street NW). For more information on Parcel 42, visit the website.
