R. Donahue Peebles vows to fund Fenty challenger

Henry Jaffe

Peebles put together one of the three teams competing to develop the Stevens Elementary School, on a prime piece of property near Washington Circle in Foggy Bottom. Peebles offered up a hotel. The very active citizens groups responded well; they clearly opposed a proposal by a competing developer who wanted to build multifamily housing on the site. This, they believed, would be gobbled up by George Washington University students.

Fenty chose the Chicago-based Equity Residential to build housing. Locals responded with comments like “baffled” and “worst case scenario.” Peebles apparently set out to get even.
