CHAMPS – Capitol Hill’s Chamber of Commerce – Announces Evening Series on Area Real Estate Development

CHAMPS ANNOUNCES AN EVENING SERIES ON REAL ESTATE DEVELOPMENT ON AND NEAR CAPITOL HILL

First Session: Tuesday, April 17 at 7:00 PM

Councilmember Tommy Wells to Speak

Co-sponsored by 3 BIDs and 2 Main Street Organizations

When will the new Capitol Riverfront neighborhood around Nationals Park become fully built-out? When will the Hine at 8th and Pennsylvania be developed and what will it look like? When will key sites on H Street and in NOMA be developed and what shape will such development take? When will Hill East move from being a plan to being developed and how?

CHAMPS, the Capitol Hill Chamber of Commerce, is sponsoring an educational series on these and other real estate-related issues to help the community better understand the pipeline of projects coming to the Capitol Hill community. The co-sponsors include the Capitol Hill BID, Capitol Riverfront BID, NOMA BID, and the Barracks Row and H Street Main Streets. The series will involve two sessions. The first program will focus on development activity south of East Capitol Street and east of South Capitol Street. The second program will feature developments north of East Capitol Street and east of North Capitol Street.

Both programs will feature presentations highlighting various development projects, and guest speakers will provide development overviews of the subject areas and the projects.

The first session will be held on Tuesday, April 17 from 7:00 to 9:00 PM. The second session will be held in mid-May. Both programs will be held at the renovated former Meader Theater at 535 8th Street, SE. This venue is generously being made available by the National Community Church. No admission fees will be charged. Please plan to join with CHAMPS and attend one or both sessions.
