Georgetown Day School Reconsiders Tenleytown Plans

Georgetown Day School is hitting the pause button to seriously consider its proposal to consolidate its schools onto one site. As proposed the cohesive campus would sit alongside a new residential development in Tenleytown at 4200 Davenport St., NW, the former site of the Tenleytown Safeway.

GDS previously shrunk its proposal for several hundred units of residential and a new grocery store in six- and seven-story buildings in March, but now the private school is taking a second look at the entire proposal, according to UrbanTurf.

A board member at the NW DC school cited a recent DC Court of Appeals decision to reject a planned unit development located just blocks from the Brookland Metro. The court determined that the DC Zoning Commission did not justify the density of the project, which a group of neighbors objected to, The Washington Business Journal reported. GDS is hoping to avoid a similar situation.
