ANC 3F Commissioner David Dickinson (contact) confirms there will be a meeting on Thursday, January 25th regarding Bernstein Management’s plans to renovate the office and retail spaces at 4250 Connecticut (See “No apartments, no UDC dorm at 4250 Connecticut. It’ll remain office and retail space.“)
From Commissioner Dickinson:
An investment affiliate of Bernstein Management Corporation (“BMC”) plans to renovate and reposition 4250 Connecticut Avenue, a 202,000 square foot office building with ground floor retail built in 1982 and occupied by Fannie Mae since 2000, to reintroduce high-end retail options and upgraded, modern office space to this Metro-oriented location.
Fannie Mae is expected to vacate the property in in late 2018, and BMC would like to be in a position to start its renovation and leasing of the property as soon as Fannie Mae moves out. This renovation plan, however, will require BMC to modify the existing Planned United Development (“PUD”) and submit its proposed changes to the PUD to the DC Zoning Commission for approval. To facilitate the zoning process, and to make certain that BMC and the community are in alignment, BMC is looking to hear from the community to help inform any potential design changes and uses with respect to the building and the site.
Please join us on Thursday, January 25 at 8 pm at 4340 Connecticut Ave NW (the Van Ness Main Street office) for an informal workshop to share ideas and discuss the project.
