DC's Edgewood neighborhood may get some more affordable housing in a rapidly-developing area.
Enterprise Community Development has filed a zoning application to add 151 affordable senior units to the southwest corner of the 792-unit Edgewood Commons community. The units would be available to people aged 60 and older, earning up to 60 percent of median family income.
The all-affordable senior building would join the neighboring seven buildings at Edgewood Commons, which are also affordable and were approved in 1966 as part of what was then termed a "large scale planned development" (LSPD).
The application, which would include a 7,000 square-foot "adult daycare center" operated by Iona Senior Services, explains that the new building would give older residents of the neighborhood an option to relocate. An additional 9,600 square feet of ground floor space would provide programming and amenities, including a library, a café, a fitness center, a solarium, and access to medical services. Wiencek + Associates is the architect.
A zoning hearing has not yet been scheduled. Additional renderings are below.
