Howard University campus plan draft

If you missed Tuesday night’s civic association meeting, never fear! We have copies of the Howard University housing presentation, which focuses on the two proposed dorms the university wishes to add on campus along 4th Street NW.

Additionally, we also have a draft of the executive summary of the campus plan.

HU Campus Plan – Draft Exec. Summary

This is just a draft, mind you, and the university expects to submit its final campus plan proposal to the Zoning Commission by the end of June. We have been assured that we will receive a copy of the full proposal before the university submits it to the Zoning Commission.

Even though the university will submit the proposal by the end of June, we will have to wait until the fall until the Zoning Commission holds hearings and votes on the proposed plan.

We will post more, including the final draft of the full plan, once these documents become available.

  1. Yes, please. Dorms are better than parking lots. Should try to include some ground floor retail for Bryant street like coffee shop/cafe and maybe book store to engage the neighborhood. I would have loved that in my days on Adams. Now that I’m waaaaay down on P, it doesn’t really affect me, except in a student building it would surely be open later than big bear. No Starbucks, please.

  2. So what’s happening to the Slowe dorm?

  3. I support the broad strokes of the campus plan, but would like to see higher quality architecture. HU’s construction of recent decades puts the “bland” in bland. I would like to see Howard erect new buildings of a similar quality (not necessarily “style”) in keeping with its older buildings.
