This Tuesday, Washington, D.C.-based S&R Foundation submitted plans to the Board of Zoning Adjustment for the historic Fillmore School in Georgetown to become an arts fellowship campus. Washington Business Journal was the first to report that the foundation proposes to redevelop the property into the Halcyon Arts Lab.
According to Washington Business Journal, "artists and fellows will pursue independent arts projects ‘with a social impact,’ as well as mentor D.C. high school students." The developer purchased the school from George Washington University in June 2015 for $16.5 million.
Located at 1801 35th Street NW, the school dates back to c. 1893 and spans 24,226 square feet. The developer plans on constructing a 13,200-square-foot addition with residential units for fellows, a gathering space for 100 attendees, and a green roof, as reported by Washington Business Journal.
The delivery is slated for 2018.
