The Fate of 965 Florida Avenue Decided Today

June 24, 2013

In February, two teams submitted proposals for the vacant city-owned parcel of land at 965 Florida Ave. NW, an increasingly valuable plot sandwiched between the U Street area, Howard University, Pleasant Plains, and Columbia Heights. One came from MRP Realty and Ellis Development Group, the other from The JBG Companies, Gragg & Associates, and Moddie Turay Co. The JBG team is meeting with a group of officials from the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development, the Office of Planning, and the District Department of Transportation at noon today to present its proposal; the Ellis team is meeting with the panel later this afternoon. And according to the JBG team, the city will pick one of the two teams to develop the property by the end of the week. (Housing Complex)
