UDC signs lease in NoMa

By Washington Post editors

The Community College of the District of Columbia made its move off of the University of the District of Columbia’s Van Ness campus official Friday, when school officials signed a lease for a nine-story building two blocks from Union Station, the Washington Business Journal reports.

The building lease, first reported by the Washington Business Journal on March 11, was approved Thursday by the D.C. Council.

UDC officials said they will use the new site for classes and other services. The school plans to be open in time for fall classes.

The community college, which is separate from UDC’s four-year undergraduate programs, also plans future campuses at the former Bernie Backus Middle School at 5171 South Dakota Ave. NE, as well as a planned 3 million-square-foot mixed-use project at Hayes Street and Kenilworth Avenue in Northeast.

Why its at Van Ness, I'll never know. The building are Stalinesque, and its just depressing to look at. It should be torn down.

It is at Van Ness because two of the three predecessor colleges that became UDC were at or very near the site. Free land. Ugly, yes. If you want to make changes, you pay for it. We haven't enough DC budget as it is.
