Recall that they became the property of the DC Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD).
DHCD auctioned off these two properties in the Vacant to Vibrant program.
The winning bids came from Howard University.
Recall that HU is required to develop these two properties as "workforce housing."
The properties are still owned by the city. Howard University does not yet own these two properties.
