ANC 6B’s Hill East Task Force will meet on Thursday, Feb. 12 to discuss and seek community feedback on redevelopment proposals for the Eastern Branch Building. The meeting will be from 6:30 – 8:00 pm at St. Coletta of Greater Washington (1901 Independence Avenue SE).
As I detailed in a previous post, the Jan. 20 community presentation of the two responses to the Department of General Services’ Eastern Branch Building RFP raised a number of questions. DGS is currently asking the two development teams – Dantes Partners/The Menkiti Group and Century Associates – to submit Best and Final Offers. I hope to have some additional information to share on next steps at the Feb. 12 meeting.
Note that ANC 6B will not consider weighing in or commenting on the proposals at our Feb. 10 meeting. The commission will likely debate and consider formal comments in March.
