Howard to offer old dorms and parking lots to the development community
Karen Goff
Howard University is seeking to offload more than a half-dozen university properties that officials deem would be better served by mixed-use redevelopment.

Carver Hall, 211 Elm Street NW, and Slowe Hall, 1919 Third St. NW. Both are dorms built in 1942. Carver is empty and Slowe is slated to close this spring. The buildings are zoned RF-1, which would allow for rowhouses. Howard reps say both buildings are in poor physical condition and far from the campus core, and the university's housing needs are being addressed by two new dorms. Both buildings are most likely to be retained and converted to apartments.
