From 12th & Allison:
EYA is partnering with the Josephites to create a new for-sale residential community and public park on a portion of the land around the Josephite’s seminary in Michigan Park. The Josephites plan to remain in the 4-story seminary building they’ve called home since 1929 and will continue carrying out their mission of serving the African American community from this location. The site is centrally located in northeast DC, within a mile of both the Brookland-CUA and the Fort Totten Metro stations and within walking distance of restaurants and shops on 12th Street and South Dakota Avenue. The site is bordered by 12th, Allison, Sargent, 13th, and Varnum streets. EYA plans to meet with the surrounding community and gather input about the site and the neighborhood in the coming weeks. We will use this feedback to create a development plan that incorporates our collective goals and will then share our plan with the community and continue to work with all stakeholders as we refine the plan.
