Yesterday evening MMD along with our partners were proud to share with the community our formal proposal for the redevelopment of the Frank D. Reeves Center. Our minority- and woman-owned and led team will produce substantial affordable housing and affordable home ownership opportunities for low-income residents through partnerships with Habitat for Humanity and Douglass Community Land Trust; create a living legacy respectful of the history of this community — honoring civic pride, activism and the arts; provide a dedicated percentage of rentals to local businesses and community nonprofits at below market rates; and proudly incorporate the national headquarters of the NAACP.
Importantly, our vision for the project:
• Creates a living legacy respectful of the history of the community and its significance to Black identity, culture and enterprise
• Establishes an open and welcoming public plaza that activates the site and honors ties to civic activism
• Proudly incorporates the new national headquarters of the NAACP, not only as a key stakeholder, but also as substantial equity owner
• Leverages the Development’s budget to create significant construction and permanent jobs for District residents, as well as affordable housing and affordable home ownership opportunities for low-income residents
This uniquely transformational project embraces social equity by maximizing minority ownership and creating equitable benefits for District residents. Our development team consists of CSG Urban Partners, Capri Investment Group and MRP Realty. Our design partners include PGN Architects, Bradley Site Design, AECOM and Smoot Construction. We are proud of our tenant partners, including the NAACP, Alvin Ailey Dance Studio and The Washington Jazz Arts Institute, among others.
