Author’s Note: This is part nine of a series on the redevelopment of the old Southeastern University site in Southwest. These articles will serve to provide information for the greater community, and not to take a side on the development debate.
This series, started in September of 2015, continues to focus on the site at 501 I St., SW, where Shakespeare Theatre Company (STC) and Erkiletian Development Group have proposed the development of a mixed-used building to be named “The Bard” after William Shakespeare. Past articles can be found on “The Southwester’s” website for those who are interested in where this story has been over the last four years.
On Monday, April 29, the Zoning Commission voted 5-0-0 to approve case number 17-21, officially approving the PUD for the old SEU site. When construction will start is still unknown, but we will certainly be following the story.
