DUKE Framework for a Cultural Destination for Greater Shaw-U Street Final Report


Duke specifically addresses the redevelopment of key public-owned properties including the District's historic Howard Theatre and Grimke School on Vermont Avenue, Parcels 33 and 42, Metro's Shaw Parcels, the Housing Finance Agency (HFA) site, and select private parcels in the 7th Street/Georgia Avenue and U Street/Florida Avenue commercial corridors.

The plan provides guidance in public policy decision-making to District agencies and commissions on affordable housing needs, local business development, existing and new cultural facilities and programming, quality public realm investments, transportation and traffic, zoning and local resident participation.

The Council of the District of Columbia approved this plan on Tuesday, June 21, 2005 through Resolution 16-0209.
