The city has been talking about the redevelopment of the old Washington Hebrew Home building at 1125 Spring Rd NW for some time -- there were some meetings over the last few years.
Now the process is moving, and the city is hosting a meeting on the building on Saturday, Apr. 9. The meeting is on the "OurRFP", which is the city's request for proposals. It's at 11am at Raymond Rec Center at 10th and Spring. They're going to present about the site and the neighborhood and are asking for your feedback and ideas. You can RSVP here.
Previously, there have been discussions of making the building low income housing, senior housing, or some combination of various types. Opponents of the redevelopment of the Park Morton subsidized housing have suggested using 1125 Spring instead of the Bruce Monroe Park site, but apparently that's not possible as they are different neighborhoods.
In any case, this meeting sounds like a good one to let the city know what you're thinking for that building. To me, living nearby, senior and lower income housing sounds fine. The building has been empty for maybe a decade at least.
