From Washington Business Journal, The Armed Forces Retirement Home is planning to seek developers to remake part of the Old Soldiers Home in Northwest D.C.

According to an article published in the Washington Business Journal on October 21st, the Armed Forces Retirement Home (AFRH) could be ready to select a team in 2015 to redevelop the southeastern area of its campus near the intersection of Irving and North Capital Street.

The AFRH has been interested in developing this area of their campus for about a decade. Despite a few false starts, it seems the AFRH is now in a good position to get things moving again. The area open for development is about 80 square acres and the original concept was to develop it with a mix of residential, retail and public park space.

    I’m not sure this is a good idea. This land has been reserved for the military veterans at the AFRH for a very long time, and now it’s being sold off to developers. Has anyone asked the residents how they feel about it?

    Great project. Irving Street between N. Capitol and Warder is some of the worst-used land anywhere in the city.
