Truxton Circle 1520-1522 N Cap NW DMPED 2015 11

The Truxton Circle site is an approximately 0.11 acre parcel located at 1520 – 1522 North Capitol Street, NW, in the Truxton Circle neighborhood of Ward 5, designated as Lot 0842 in Square 0615 (“Site”).  The Site is currently a vacant lot and is located a block south of the intersection of North Capitol Street, NW, and Florida Avenue, NW.  The Site is bounded by North Capitol Street, NW, to the east, Bates Street to the north, row-houses to the south, and an alley to the west.  New York Avenue and the NoMa-Gallaudet University Metro Stop are a few blocks southeast of the Site.

A Request for Proposals (RFP) for the Truxton Circle parcel was issued on April 17, 2015. The submission deadline for proposals was May 29, 2015.

Two development teams responded to the request for proposals. They were:

  • Urban Green, LLC, with Flywheel Development
  • Blue Sky Housing, LLC

An interdisciplinary panel of District government staff is currently evaluating the responses.  As part of the evaluation process, the two development teams presented their proposed development projects to the community at the Bates Area Civic Association on November 2, 2015.  The presentations from each development team are available below.  The public comment period is open through December  11, 2015.  Any comments or questions may be emailed directly to the Project Manager, Tsega Bekele.

Questions should be directed to Tsega Bekele, Project Manager, at tsega.bekele@dc.gov.
