Hine School Redevelopment Meeting

Meet with the developer, affordable housing consultants, and ANC 6B Commissioner Kirsten Oldenburg to discuss the Hine Junior High School project at the Eastern Market Metro station. The public land project will offer a significant amount of very affordable housing along with office, retail and market rate housing, and will rebuild C Street and use it for the flea market on weekends. It’s a great example of redevelopment that has already been approved by the Historic Preservation Review Board (HPRB).

Next stop is the Zoning Commission on June 14. The catch is that despite its many supporters and HPRB approval, it also has some ardent critics. Join us for a field trip to Eastern Market to learn about this important project. Our goal is to support this project at the Zoning Commission so that it can deliver the promised amount of affordable housing and sensitively-scaled mix of uses and public spaces. Those of you who live on Capitol Hill are especially encouraged to participate.

Pro-DC is an organizing project of the Coalition for Smarter Growth (www.smartergrowth.net) and Greater Greater Washington (www.greatergreaterwashington.org)
