Rumblings about development at Howard University’s 23 acre School of Divinity property have gone on for years. The last time we wrote about it, in June 2016, the University was engaging community stakeholders about the potential development. We recently learned through this article in the Washington Business Journal that the University has selected a developer to oversee the project. From the article:
D.C.-based FLGA LLC Real Estate Group and Orlando-based ZOM Living will immediately begin their due diligence and master planning activities for Howard’s East Campus, the university announced. The property, at 1400 Shepherd St. NE, is largely vacant land with three existing structures, two of which are historic and will be retained. The divinity school operated there until 2015.
On Wednesday November 15 there will be an ANC5B Meeting from 6:30 – 8:30 pm at John Burroughs Elementary (1800 Block of Newton Street NE). Howard University guests will discuss latest steps in development of Howard Divinity Campus.
The Howard University School of Divinity (HUSD) is located at 1400 Shepherd Street, NE. We will let you know when we hear anything new.
