About 12th & Allison

Project Description & Location

EYA is partnering with the Josephites to create a new for-sale residential community and public park on a portion of the land around the Josephite’s seminary in Michigan Park. The Josephites plan to remain in the 4-story seminary building they’ve called home since 1929 and will continue carrying out their mission of serving the African American community from this location. The site is centrally located in northeast DC, within a mile of both the Brookland-CUA and the Fort Totten Metro stations and within walking distance of restaurants and shops on 12th Street and South Dakota Avenue. The site is bordered by 12th, Allison, Sargent, 13th, and Varnum streets. Throughout 2016 and early 2017, EYA has been meeting with residents and community stakeholders gathering input and feedback on its proposal. We have incorporated this feedback into a detailed proposal that was submitted to the City in August 2016 and resubmitted in February 2017. The proposal will be heard by the Zoning Commission on April 27, 2017. To see the latest plans and designs, please check out the Project Gallery.
