April 10: JBG forum on 13th and U Project
A few weeks ago it was reported that the dormant plans for development at the southwest corner of 13th and U Streets NW were being revived. Originally slated to be a hotel, more recent information is suggesting rental apartments. Developer JBG Cos. will be hosting a community forum to discuss the “conceptual architectural character” of the building.
At recent neighborhood meetings discussing the project, numerous attendees had serious concerns about the height of the proposed building. JBG is the developer behind several other major projects in the area: The District apartments at 14th and S, The Louis at 14th and U, and an unnamed project at 8th and Florida. The meeting on the 13th and U plans will be held Tuesday, April 10 at 7 pm at Busboys & Poets at 14th and V Streets NW.
