The Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development (DMPED) is proud to announce the Northwest One site at North Capitol and K Street NW as the next project to utilize the Our RFP process, a Mayoral Initiative that incorporates community engagement early in the request for proposals (RFP) process. Early engagement with the community will ensure that the public’s perspective and priorities are understood in conjunction with the District’s goals when crafting and issuing the RFP. Three DMPED projects, Parcel 42 in Shaw, the Crummel School in Ivy City, and 1125 Spring Road in Park View have previously gone through an OurRFP process. More information on those projects can be found here: http://dmped.dc.gov/page/our-rfp
The site is located between K and L Streets along North Capitol Street, contains approximately 150,000 square feet and is part of the New Communities Initiative, a District program focused on creating vibrant mixed-income and mixed-used neighborhoods through physical architecture and human capital development.
Join DMPED at the OurRFP Public Workshop on Tuesday, June 21st at RH Terrell Recreation Center (co-located with the Walker Jones Education Campus) at 155 L Street NW from 6:30pm until 8:30pm for an interactive discussion of the community’s goals and preferences for the redevelopment of the District controlled properties located at 1010 North Capitol Street NW and 33 K Street NW in the Northwest One neighborhood. At the OUR RFP workshop, the District will present a thorough analysis of the site and neighborhood, with a consideration of both market dynamics and the goals of New Communities. Participants will then be invited to share their thoughts on the future development in facilitated break-out group sessions. Your feedback will be then be combined with citywide objectives (including those of NCI) to create the OurRFP. RSVP in advance at NW1OurRFP.eventbrite.com
After the Workshop, an online engagement forum will be launched in order to get additional feedback and give those who are unable to attend the meeting an opportunity to participate. A follow up community meeting will be held in late July to reconnect with the community on the feedback received through the process and how it will be incorporated into the RFP.
