The 15-acre historic Fairmont Heights High School (FHHS) Property at 1401 Nye Street in Capitol Heights, Maryland, consists of an approximately 170,000-square-foot building, football field, baseball diamond, and parking. In 2017, Fairmont Heights High School moved to the new $80 million, 193,000 square-foot building at 6501 Columbia Park Road in Landover and left the Nye Street location vacant. The Historic FHHS property offers a quiet, pleasant development site proximate to several major transportation routes and Metro stations, as well as access to shopping, recreation, and medical care. The adaptive reuse study describes the existing conditions of the school and site, including the historic and physical context in which it was built; the current and future approved zoning and land uses, and provides extensive details on its construction, evolution, and current physical condition. The study explores the historic aspects of the site, including its current County designation, and touches on the major findings of the December 2018 Historic Fairmont Heights High School Adaptive Reuse Economic Study. It describes the public participation process for the study, details the stakeholder concerns and interests explored in meetings and community gatherings, and provides an analysis of reuse options suggested by stakeholders. Three potential scenarios for reusing the site and building are described. An analysis of available funding tools is provided at the end of the study.
