Today, DC’s Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development announced the selection of two development teams grouped in two bundles for the redevelopment and transformation of Reservation 13, formally known as Hill East District Phase II Redevelopment.
The following is a statement from Ward 6 Councilmember Charles Allen:
“Today is a major step forward for a project that has stretched on for nearly two decades, offering more concrete details of the vision and hope Hill East neighbors have long held for Reservation 13 to extend the neighborhood from 19th Street to the Anacostia River.
The winning bids commit to building more housing at multiple price points and for individuals and families at different stages of life, bringing much needed local retail, a hotel, and adding neighborhood parks and green spaces. I’m looking forward to digging more into the details on the selected proposals and how they plan to make good on the promises to the community they've made. Thanks to the team at DMPED and to all of our ANC and Ward 6 neighbors who have helped shape this project.”
