This website is dedicated to providing information about developments related to 501 I Street SW, the former Southeastern University. 501 I Street SW was bought by Erkiletian Construction Corporation in partnership with Shakespeare Theatre in Washington, D.C. The resultant partnership is doing business as “As You Like It, LLC.” The 501 I Street SW site is surrounded by a vibrant neighborhood established in the 1950s. Development at the 501 I Street site should be in keeping with the low-rise character of the neighborhood and should not include a 9-story building as the developer has proposed.
