News from Gallaudet University
Many of us contributed ideas to Gallaudet University’s (GU) design competition for the 6th Street NE development project. This feedback will be provided to the four finalists recently selected to continue with the second phase of the design competition. These four finalists will engage the project’s diverse community of stakeholders in a series of interactive workshops to be held at Gallaudet University the week of October 19 and will submit their final design proposals by January 2016. You can read more about the competition and the firms selected for the shortlist here.
Recently GU also announced that they selected a new president to lead the university. Roberta Cordano will assume leadership of the university as Alan Hurwitz retires at the end of the year. We welcome her to the neighborhood and trust that the process to open gates between the university and the surrounding neighborhoods will continue under her guidance.
