Subject: [CPEO-MEF] REUSE: Walter Reed plan on way to DC Council
Walter Reed Plan Approved, On Its Way to Council

Washington City Paper (DC)
January 26, 2012

Ten months after the lines at Walter Reed were redrawn in the District's favor, there's finally a plan for how the campus will be redeveloped. Last night, the local redevelopment committee approved a base re-use plan that will the go to the Council as a bill for approval, and then to the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development.

What's in it? Pretty much what's been contemplated from the beginning: 3.1 million gross square feet of development, of which over half will be residential, a quarter office space, and the rest retail and "creative" space. Washington Yu Ying Public Charter School will get 100,000 square feet for a middle and high school, Latin American Montessori Bilingual charter school gets 30,000 square feet, So Others Might Eat will maintain 40 units of housing for homeless seniors, HELP USA will build 75 units of low-income housing, and the Transitional Housing Corporation will get 6,000 square feet of office space. There will be no bus maintenance or storage facilities, according to specific language in the plan (so much for that dream of redeveloping bus barns on upper 14th Street and in Friendship Heights).
