Georgetown Day School, one of Washington, D.C.'s most prestigious and rigorous schools, is planning a consolidation of the lower, middle, and upper schools on a new campus. UrbanTurf reported that construction is slated to begin the summer of 2018 with plans for two residential buildings, a roughly 30,000-square-foot grocery store, and a plaza called Davenport Steps. The residential buildings will be six and seven stories high and will have between 270 and 290 units, reports UrbanTurf . There are also plans for a two-story below-grade parking garage. A Safeway and Martens Volvo/Volkswagen dealership across the street from the school will be razed during the redevelopment. Construction is expected to take roughly two years.
