CBCC Issues letter to DC Mayor for Planning and Economic Development re: 1000 4th Street, SW Waterfront
On October 9, 2015, CBCC offered to the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development (DMPED), Mark Bleyer, an analysis of each of the three bids for the proposed vacant lot redevelopment at 1000 4th Street, SW, also known as the Waterfront Station Parcel. This analysis reflects both CBCC's newly-adopted principles for redevelopment and identifies components and direction that should guide DMPED's negotiations.

Six Principles to Guide ANC 6D Redevelopment: CBCC Speaks
Reflecting the Southwest Small Area Plan and the Community Benefits Coordinating Council’s mission “…to ensure that ANC 6D redevelopment sustains neighborhood diversity and improve residents’ quality of life,” CBCC has adopted six principles against which to assess redevelopment proposals. In CBCC’s view, framing principles are increasingly important as Planned Unit Developments (PUDs) are the main instrument for Southwest redevelopment. PUDs can set aside existing zoning requirements in exchange for other concessions, such as higher building height in exchange for building setbacks or more affordable housing units than otherwise required, but they can also rapidly change the character of the community. While CBCC can use these principles to test proposals against its mission, they may also enable the community to reinsert its voice as expressed in the Small Area Plan into current deliberations.
