Thank you to everyone who voted for me in yesterday's election. After 3 terms of fighting for Ivy City its time to pass the baton. Its bitter sweet because even before moving into the neighborhood I've worked to improve it and its resident's life so I'll have to figure out a new way to continue the work I begun because greater is yet to come for my beloved neighborhood. Again, thank you and know even without the title of Commissioner I'll be my neighborhood's staunches advocate.

DMPED Selects Development Teams for Parcel 42, Crummell School

Selections are District’s first OurRFP projects, Mayor Bowser’s initiative to ensure development meets community needs

(WASHINGTON, D.C.) – Today, the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development (DMPED) announced developer teams for Parcel 42 and Crummell School, the District’s first two OurRFP projects. OurRFP is Mayor Muriel Bowser’s initiative that incorporates community feedback early in the request for proposals (RFP) process, ensuring that District residents have a voice on development in their neighborhoods.

“The successful OurRFP process ensure that Parcel 42 and Crummell School will be thoughtfully developed and reflect these neighborhood’s interests and needs,” said Mayor Muriel Bowser. “Ultimately, the selected proposals will expand our shared priorities as a District: affordable housing, small business growth, and job opportunities that generate revenues we can invest back into these neighborhoods.”

Parcel 42

The development team of Parcel 42 Partners, which includes Ditto Residential and Irving Development, was selected out of six proposals to develop Parcel 42 - a 17,008 square feet vacant lot located in the vibrant Shaw neighborhood at 7th Street, NW and Rhode Island Avenue, NW.

Parcel 42 Partners’ proposal was the community and Advisory Neighborhood Commission 6E preference, meeting housing, retail, and design preferences of the neighborhood. The proposal includes 90 larger residential units – offering more affordable housing square footage than required by law – with the majority being two/three-bedrooms geared towards families.

The development will also feature an outdoor public park, which encourages pedestrian activity, and a vibrant streetscape that enhances Shaw’s cultural landscape. Parcel 42 Partners will also develop 8,000 square feet of neighborhood-serving retail with storefronts facing directly onto 7th and R Streets, NW expanding the growing commercial district of Shaw. Additionally, the developers will designate one storefront with a rent subsidy for a Shaw-neighborhood business. The proposed plan is expected to create over 130 construction and 180 permanent jobs.



Crummell School

The development team of Ivy City Partners - consisting of Stonebridge Carras and Ocean Pro Properties - was selected out of three proposals for the redevelopment Crummell School, a 108,000 square feet site that includes the historic school and adjacent parking lot at 1900 Gallaudet Street, NE in the Ivy City neighborhood of Ward 5.

Ivy City Partners’ proposal was the community’s number one choice as supported by Advisory Neighborhood Commission 5D. It met the community’s top preferences that the site be repurposed for community and public uses and offer industrial, retail, and job training opportunities while preserving the rich history of Crummell School. In meeting another community preference, the District will retain ownership of the school and provide the option for a community center including a day care, health clinic, culinary school, and recreational facility. In addition, Ivy City Partners has designated considerable interior space to be tailored for uses as determined by the community and District in the future.

The school will be surrounded by community open space and include an urban garden, working farm, restaurant, and other commercial spaces. The site will also be lined by apartment and townhouse-style mixed-income housing facing Gallaudet and Okie Streets, NE. Profish, a District and Ivy City-based seafood company, will expand its operations from its nearby headquarters to a new industrial space on-site, and in the basement of the school for DC workforce training opportunities. In total, the project will provide 320 rental units from studios to two-bedroom units, including over 60 affordable units, 35,000 square feet of industrial space and 22,000 square feet of community-serving retail.

“Our agency is grateful for the high level of engagement, involvement and interest from District residents in the development of Parcel 42 and Crummell School,” said Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development Brian Kenner. “We are excited about both development plans that will bring much needed jobs, housing, retail, dining and public space to the hearts of both of these communities.”

Using the OurRFP process, DMPED held community meetings, public workshops, and online forums for each project to ensure the proposed developments met community needs and priorities. The process is intended to provide greater transparency as well as accountability for delivering public benefits through the Our RFP initiative. The District currently has two additional OurRFP projects - 1125 Spring Road, NW and Northwest One (1010-1024 North Capitol Street, NW and 33 K Street, NW) with more planned for 2017.

TJ MAXX COMING TO IVY CITY!

I’ve been thrilled with every new opening at the Hecht Warehouse at Ivy City however I must say I am extremely happy to announce that a TJ Maxx is coming to our community. This new addition is especially significant because residents can now buy quality attire which can be used to gain employment or every day wear at affordable prices. The store has an approximate opening date of November 2016.

I wasn't present but it's nice to have charity events take place within our community.

DC DMV Indefinitely Suspends Proposed Driver Education Regulations

(WASHINGTON, DC) – The District of Columbia Department of Motor Vehicles (DC DMV) is indefinitely suspending the driver education requirement for residents who are first time drivers regardless of their age.

In 2014, DC DMV drafted regulations that would have required all first time drivers to pass a driver education course administered by a private vendor. Implementation was scheduled to begin on May 1, 2016; however, the agency will further review the impact of such a requirement on residents.

New drivers will still be required to have a valid DC DMV learner permit. For more information on obtaining a driver license, visit: http://dmv.dc.gov/service/driver-services

Ivy City's history is rich and residents are happy to have the Hecht's Warehouse restored which creates another fabric within its history for generations to experience.

In Ivy City, we are thrilled to be part of a 79-year legacy. While much has changed in the neighborhood and beyond, the soul of the #HechtWarehouse has remained intact.

12 low-priced townhouses coming to D.C.’s Ivy City

I'm extremely proud to say providing housing at a level that current residents of ANC 5D01 could afford was at the forefront of all meetings with this developer so it's great to see others in city government recognizing it as a concept that should be replicated. Additionally, I'm hoping that other developers will see that they can create lucrative projects while uplifting the community. Ivy City and Single Member District 5D01 residents are excited to have more affordable dwellings built within our community.

Developers plan construction to meet the city's requirements to set aside affordable housing units.

Special Report: Why D.C. needs more affordable housing--and how we can get there

Research concludes to afford housing in DC one must earn $28.00 per hour. For a majority of people this income level is not immediately achievable if at all achievable. We need to build more affordable housing so EVERY citizen can live a decent life.

Affordable housing is not a benefit just for the very poor; it's something that can tie a city together. D.C. has some progressive housing policies, but it's clear the need is greater.

Ms Lewis, I understand from the discussion of yesterday's ANC meeting that you were the commissioner behind the ANC's support for the motion to have ASL interpreters at the ANC meetings. Thank you. Hopefully this is something that will be available at future meetings.
Hello Commissioner! Christopher Kuhn and I just moved to your district. When is the next SMD meeting? We would love to attend.
