Review Board Delays Vote on Barry Farm Landmark Designation

A long-awaited vote by D.C.’s Historic Preservation Review Board on a pending historic landmark application to preserve the remaining buildings of the Barry Farm Dwellings public housing community has been rescheduled for Dec. 5.

The vote was originally postponed to allow the applicant, Barry Farm Tenants and Allies Association, time to seek a compromise agreement with the D.C. Housing Authority and its chosen site developer, Preservation of Affordable Housing. The talks have ended without an agreement.

On Thursday, the Board put on record their position on landmarking — 5-1 in favor — but deferred a vote to allow more time for the parties to meet and see if any changes can be made to allow for landmarking some portion of the site while also allowing the redevelopment to go forward.
