The roughly 20 acres of grounds surrounding the Howard University School of Divinity (HUSD), located at 1400 Shepherd Street, NE have been rumored to be developed for years. Now several recent community meetings have shed some light on the planned development and the process moving forward. As for the HUSD building itself, it closed last summer and needs renovations estimated at over more than $20 million.
Howard University has partnered with the Urban Land Institute (ULI) to engage community stakeholders about the development which has already included interviews with community stakeholders and residents.
As part of their outreach, the community is invited to take this survey to give feedback on what they would like. Thanks to the commenter below who let us know that the community survey is now closed.
The property is located in the 5B-02 Single Member District of ANC 5B of which Commissioner Ursula Higgins is the single member district commissioner. If you would like to get on her email list about the development sign up at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will let you know when we here anything new.
