The Deputy Mayor of Planning and Economic Development (DMPED) recently released a RFEI for development of Squares 0560 and 0563N near 2nd & H Streets NW. Square 0560 represents the Air Rights over I-395 above H Street that is currently occupied by a two level parking structure. Square 0563N is a triangular parcel between 2nd Street, New Jersey Ave and H Street NW that is currently a fenced in gravel parking lot.
It is not entirely clear to me whether the Air-Rights parking structure would be torn down and this project would start anew? Or if the parking structure could be reinforced to support new development above it. I would guess the later but am unsure.
RFEI submissions are due August 28th. After a short list is compiled from the submissions a formal RFP (Request for Proposals) process will begin in the fall.
