Revised Plan For Southwest D.C.'s Randall School Calls For 485 Units, Museum And Restaurant Space

The initial development proposal for the Randall School, approved by the Zoning Commission in 2014

The Zoning Commission in 2014 approved a plan for more than 500 units to be built on the site of Southwest D.C.'s historic Randall School, but that plan is being scaled back. 

Lowe Enterprises joined the development team in May and Monday night the team presented a new concept for the project at 65 I St. SW to community members, UrbanTurf reports.

The revised plan shrinks the project from 520 to 485 residential units, including some two-story duplexes. The plan currently calls for studios, one-bedrooms and two-bedrooms, but the team is still considering including three-bedroom units. The team is also looking at setting aside some of the units as for-sale rather than rentals. The modifications would add balconies for the units on the top six floors.

The project will include space for a museum, a café or restaurant, and potential office and educational uses. The team plans to file the modified application in August and hopes to break ground by early 2019 to deliver the project in 2021.

UPDATE, JULY 11, 4:00 p.m. ET: The story has been updated with the address of the Randall School.
