This spring, construction is expected to begin on a 60-unit affordable senior building as part of the redevelopment of Ward 7's Meadow Green Courts Apartments. Now, a much larger plan is in the works for the existing apartments at Minnesota Avenue and East Capitol Street SE.
A developer has applied to rezone the nearly 12-acre site at 3610 Minnesota Avenue, 3425 and 3501-3547 East Capitol Street SE and 127 35th Street SE (map) from RA-1 to RA-2 in order to raze the 53 buildings of affordable housing at these locations. The 461 apartments would then be replaced with approximately 907 residential units, 400-435 of which would be affordable for the life of the project while the remainder would be market-rate.
The existing residents will have the right to return and can receive a 10 percent discount if any for-sale housing is built, per an agreement with the tenants' association when Tenant Opportunity to Purchase Act rights were assigned to the developer.
A zoning hearing has not yet been scheduled.
