150 new units are coming to Deanwood, the neighborhood northeast of Benning Road between Nannie Helen Burroughs Avenue and the Maryland line.
The affordable housing plan for Deanwood Hills at 5201 Hayes Street NE (map), a property owned by the DC government, would include a 150-unit building with studios and 1-, 2-, 3- and 4-bedroom units. Torti Gallas Urban is the architect on the project.
Fifty of those units would replace public housing at Lincoln Heights and Richardson Dwellings; the remaining 100 would be offered as affordable to DC residents making 60 percent of the area median income. That’s $45,864 per year for an individual or up to $72,072 for a family of five. The development will have 75 parking spaces on a surface lot.
Community amenities at the site will include a gym, a garden, a playground, a patio and a game room. The development is proposed as part of DC’s embattled New Communities Initiative to make more affordable housing available to low-income residents in the District.
