A development that will replace some of the units at the Lincoln Heights/Richardson Dwellings in Ward 7 is approaching the pipeline. The Progressive National Baptist Convention (PNBC) is teaming up with Atlantic|Pacific Communities and UrbanMatters Development Partners to propose a 100-unit all-affordable project on the former’s campus.

The 70,712 square-foot site at Nannie Helen Burroughs Avenue and 50th Street NE (map) is currently a surface parking lot on the western edge of the PNBC campus. The development team recently filed a planned-unit development that would deliver a five-story building with 100 residential units, all for households earning up to 60 percent of area median income.

Out of the apartments, 35 would be replacement units for residents of the nearby Lincoln Heights and Richardson Dwellings. There would be a total of 56 one-bedrooms, 32 two-bedrooms, 9 three-bedrooms (8 of which would be replacement units) and 3 four-bedrooms (all of which would be replacement units).
An entrance on 50th Street
Amenities include east- and west-facing courtyards, a gym, business center, community room and rooftop terrace. The development would also include 48 vehicular parking spaces and 34 bicycle storage spaces in a partially below-grade garage.

Designed by Torti Gallas Urban, the building will have an Arte Moderne style that is a simplified version of the architecture of other buildings on the campus. It is located across from a National Historic Landmark in one of the original structures of the National Training School for Women and Girls, an institution founded in 1906 by civil rights and suffrage activist Nannie Helen Burroughs.

Approval of and progress on this development will likely pave the way for the future redevelopment of Lincoln Heights, which the city plans to release for a request for proposals this spring.
