Howard University To Convert Two Dorms Into Apartment Buildings
Howard University is looking to convert two existing dormitories into apartment buildings, per documents filed recently with the Zoning Commission.
The two dorms that would be converted are Carver Hall at 211 Elm Street NW (map) and Slowe Hall at 1919 Third Street NW (map), which the university describes as “functionally obsolete dorms” that were scheduled for closure in the campus plan.
“The University has received interest from a number of qualified developers who are seeking to renovate both buildings for non-university residential use,” the documents state. “Both buildings are most likely to be retained and converted to apartment use subject to community input and approval by the Board of Zoning Adjustment.”
