The DC Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) is releasing this Request for Proposals (“RFP”) for the redevelopment of the following parcels:
- 58th and Dix Streets NE
- 1444-1454 Alabama Avenue SE
- Benning Road and G Streets SE
DHCD, through this Solicitation, shall award the available development site to a developer for the purpose of planning, financing, building and managing a mixed-income for sale, housing development. In 2022, Mayor Bowser launched the Black Homeownership Strikeforce1 and announced a goal of 20,000 new black homeowners by 2030. This RFP seeks to push towards that goal by increasing the available homeownership opportunities in the District while also continuing the push to meet the District-wide housing goals of producing 36,000 new units, of which 12,000 will be affordable across ten planning areas, set by Mayor Bowser through the 2019 Housing Equity Report. More information is available at: housing.dc.gov
Furthermore, DHCD is excited to offer this development opportunity with a focus on equitable inclusion and looks forward to working together with the development community to produce affordable homeownership opportunities in the District of Columbia.
Solicitations amended as of May 5, 2023 with updated application instructions and Pre-Proposal Conference dates.
