When Fannie Mae leaves its current residence at 3900 Wisconsin Avenue next summer, it will leave behind a 248,000-square-foot Colonial building, constructed in 1958 and located on approximately 10 acres of land. Roadside Development and North America Sekisui House, who purchased the Fannie Mae property for under $90 million last November, expect to narrow down the ideas for what to do with the property by the first quarter of 2017.

DCist reported that the developers are reaching out to the community to ask what they should do with the property. The developers have been scheduling meetings with stakeholders like local ANCs, Sidwell Friends School, and McLean Gardens.

So far, there hasn’t been a “significant amount” of responses, according to DCist, who further reported that the comments so far have been for mixed-use.

When Fannie Mae moves, it will move to Midtown Center, which will be located on the site of the former Washington Post headquarters.
