Tenley-Friendship/Janney Elementary Solicitation of Offers

The Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development on October 31, 2007 issued a Solicitation of Offers on the 3.6 acre Tenley-Friendship/Janney Elementary school site in Northwest Washington.
The site, at the corner of Wisconsin Avenue and Albemarle Street, includes the 15,000 square foot Tenely library, which is being demolished, and the Janney school, which is currently 43,000 square feet, but scheduled for expansion.
Offerers are are being asked to provide their vision for the site as well as work with school and library officials to incorporate their uses. In accordance with the District's Comprehensive Plan, the site could also potentially be used for housing and retail, specifically street-level retail, that would enliven the Wisconsin Anvenue commericial corridor. The site is less than a block from the Tenleytown-AU Metrorail Station and well-served by Metrobus along Wisconsin Avenue. Responses to the solicitation are due on Dec. 18.
