A project that would include a 178-unit affordable rental building for senior citizens and 21 for-sale row houses is planned for Ward 7’s Marshall Heights neighborhood, according to documents filed with the Board of Zoning Adjustment on Tuesday.
Carver Terraces, from Chapman Development and Grimm + Parker Architects, would be located on a triangular lot at the intersection of East Capitol Street SE and 47th Street SE (map) not far from the Benning Road Metro station. The address was the previous site of the George Washington Carver Apartments, which was acquired by the building tenants through the Tenants Opportunity to Purchase Act in 2003.
Renderings of homes planned for the site.
More on the history and plans for the site:
The District Department of Housing and Community Development provided the tenants money to use for the acquisition. The District made additional grants and loans to the Tenants Association to fund pre-development costs, demolition and relocation costs and the existing buildings were demolished. The Property is now vacant and consists of eight lots, with a combined total lot area of 181,187 square feet. The Property will be subdivided and the eight existing lots will become 22 individual lots.
The rental building would consist of one and two-bedroom apartments, and offer amenities including a parking garage, a large courtyard garden with several patio areas, a coffee bar, and a large media room and theater space. The three-bedroom rowhouses would be offered in two models. Units in the new development would be available to senior citizens who make 80 percent of less of the Area Median Income.
