Master Planning Process
In the summer of 2018, Howard University’s master development team, FLGA ZOM, LLC, oversaw intensive site due diligence activities prior to initiating a formal re-imagining and planning process. The goal of these activities was to provide a clear and objective assessment of the site and its suitability to guide future planning efforts.
In 2019, Howard University’s master development team, FLGA ZOM, LLC, began the formal process of overseeing the re-imagination and planning of the East Campus site.

As part of the Phase I planning process, the master development team met with the Dean of the School of Divinity, Dr. Yolanda Pierce and the Dean of the School of Social Work, Dr. Sandra Edmonds Crewe to conduct a needs and use assessment. Both Deans shared their expectations, hopes and vision for their school’s future relocation to the East Campus site.
The university’s goal as a community partner is to have input from the residents and businesses surrounding the East Campus. Transparency is important to the university and it intends for stakeholders to access project information in a variety of forms, including marketing collateral, community meeting presentations, and an interactive map on the project website detailing the redevelopment process of the site.
