Webb Elementary School, where the architecture is not exactly beckoning.

Oh well, I guess I missed this: Aside from the eleven schools that the District is already trying to redevelop, three new schools have been offered up for re-use. 

Those schools are Birney Elementary School in Anacostia next to Barry Farm, Rabaut Junior High School in Lamond-Riggs,  and Webb Elementary School in Ivy City.

They're are being offered almost exclusively to charter schools, who are competing with developers for choice locations downtown, on Capitol Hill, and in other places. 

Poor condo builders, they must be fuming at that missed opportunity in Ivy City. After all, there's a great view of cemetery across the street!  

According to the request for offers (RFO), Rabaut is currently occupied, the other two don't appear to be. The only eligible applicants for this RFO are charter schools and existing tenants. Site visits occurred last week. But applications are due in early July.
