Development teams have proposed everything from an indoor ice rink to a Lidl grocery store to pair with the residential redevelopment of the former Temple Courts Apartments in Northwest.

Eight developers have answered the District’s request for proposals for the site at North Capitol and K streets NW, now part of the Northwest One revitalization area. Planning for Northwest One began in 2005, but only a small percentage of the new development, including the Walker-Jones Education Campus and 314 housing units at 2 M St. NW, has been completed.

The 3.5-acre Temple Courts site was offered — this time around — to the development community in September by the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development as part of the city’s New Communities Initiative. New Communities seeks to revitalize areas of public and low-income housing with mixed-income, mixed-use neighborhoods.
