WASHINGTON, DC-Three firms have responded to the District’s solicitation seeking a development partner to rebuild the Park Morton public housing complex–a $170 million project. The District wants to redevelop the Georgia Avenue structure into 477 new units of both affordable and market-rate housing, along with 46 off-site homes and a 10,000-square-foot park. The project can be completed in phases. Mayor Adrian Fenty’s office did not return a call to GlobeSt.com in time for publication.

The responding bidders are Park Morton Partners, which includes Pennrose Properties, FM Atlantic and Harrison Adaoha; and Park Morton Partners–same name, different team–consisting of the Neighborhood Development Co. and the Community Builders; as well as Park View Partners, comprised of Landex Corp., Warrenton Group and Spectrum Management.

The Park Morton project falls under the District’s New Communities program, which is rebuilding four of the city’s public housing complexes. The other New Communities are Northwest One in Ward 6, Barry Farm in Ward 8 and Lincoln Heights/Richardson Dwellings in Ward 7. Park Morton is in Ward 1′s Park View neighborhood, bound by Georgia Avenue on the west, Warder Street on the east, Lamont Street on the south, and Park Road on the north. The bidders will be presenting their proposals to the community in a public meeting, scheduled for some time this Spring.
