Skyland Shopping Center Phase I
Address: 2808 and 2812 Alabama Ave, SE, Washington, DC
Project Scope of Work (SOW):
The Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development is leading the efforts of the Skyland project. The execution of the construction scope of work will be managed by the Department of General Services, includes Abatement, Demolition, Site Stabilization and repair of the Skyland Shopping Center buildings. Site Stabilization and Repairs consist of the installation of a concrete retaining wall and fencing, remove 2 free standing signs, selective asphalt pavement repair as well as install a new railing and concrete curb.
The Skyland project is geared to promote neighborhood revitalization and economic growth on an 18-acre site located in Ward 7 at the intersections of Good Hope Road, Naylor Road, and Alabama Ave SE. While the Skyland Shopping Center is still active, a considerable portion of the shopping center is vacant, and now contains either underutilized buildings with some boarded-up and vacated buildings, which presents serious safety concerns in the neighborhood. The potential of this site is significant, due to its prominent location, the considerable land area available for redevelopment, and the resources and public benefits the project would provide to the neighborhood. Plans for Skyland call for more than 315,000 square feet of retail space-- a combination of high-quality, large format national-brand retailers and neighborhood serving shops and restaurants. The project will also include 468 units of housing.
