This afternoon Ward 6 Councilmember Charles Allen attended the signing of the city’s Land Disposition Agreement for the transfer of two parcels to Donatelli Development and Blue Skye to begin the redevelopment of Reservation 13.
Allen said, "Today is a big day for Reservation 13, the Hill East neighborhood, and the entire city. It's an important step toward realizing the vision for and full potential of this corner of the city, as well as finally delivering on promises made to the Hill East community. Bringing over 100 new affordable residential units, over 100 new jobs, and much-needed retail amenities, this project will begin the process of redeveloping Reservation 13 and extending the Hill East community to the Anacostia River."
The DC Council approved the surplus and disposition of Parcels F-1 and G-1 last year. Mayor Bowser’s signing today of the resulting Land Disposition Agreement allows Donatelli and Blue Skye to move forward and begin construction on the project.
