Recently-auctioned lot on Shannon Place SE

A few weeks ago, UrbanTurf reported on the Department of Housing and Community Development's (DHCD) Vacant to Vibrant DC initiative, which included an auction of more than 30 vacant houses and lots throughout the city. Now, the gavel has sounded and the properties are on the way to becoming up to fifty units of workforce housing.

"The auction produced fantastic results," Matt Cooper of Alex Cooper Auction House shared with UrbanTurf. "We had over 1,000 inquiries on the properties and the auction brought in approximately $12.3 million. All the properties sold."

Each property was sold subject to affordability covenants and will have rental or sale amount caps upon completion. Below, we revisit each of the properties in order of purchase price, which includes a 5 percent buyer's premium:
