Outreach: Serving the Community

Kwanzaa Kitchen: Janis has been able to come up with a unique way in which we will continue to feed the hungry in this important ministry. It involves fewer than 6 people and we will pack the food to go and place it outside on tables for people to take their breakfast with them. We will continue this way until we are able to gather groups together again.

some action at Bloomingdale's two former Hofgard houses to be developed into workforce housing: 160 Adams St NW and 36 Channing St NW

These two properties have lots of history.

You can Google against the blog here if you want to get caught up.  

Quick summary: Bloomingdale has two former Hofgard houses which were acquired by DC Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) as part of its Vacant-to-Vibrant program.  The two addresses are 160 Adams Street NW and 36 Channing Street NW.  

DC DHCD put out a bid for developers.  The winner bidders were announced back in July 2019.  

The winning developer for 160 Adams Street NW was North Star Properties LLC.
The winning developer for 36 Channing Street NW was Space to Grow LLC.

As far as I can tell, these two properties have not yet been sold to the winning bidders.  Maybe the property sales will show up soon. 

These properties are intended to be developed as workforce housing. 

It is not clear if the projects are intended to deliver rental units or ownership units. 

For now, let me share this current news.

DCRA's Civic Insight advises that about a permit for 160 Adams Street NW.

An opening question: All of the existing permits for 160 Adams St NW have expired.  Does the existing third-story pop-up "convey?"

Here is what DCRA's Civic Insight has for Bloomingdale's other former Hofgard house, 36 Channing Street NW:

Nice to see some action on these two properties.

Bowser strikes deals for new Howard hospital and new Southeast D.C. hospital

April 29, 2020 at 11:15 p.m. EDT
The District has reached long elusive agreements for hospitals to replace the troubled United Medical Center and Howard University facilities, city officials said Thursday, a move that would transform health-care access in heavily African American parts of the city.

Young also said the District would offer nearly $300 million to help Howard University build a new hospital campus, a culmination of a long search for a new facility for the nation’s longtime training ground for black doctors.
