Two Similar Design Options for Peebles' Affordable Housing in Anacostia
As part of a deal to bring a high-end hotel to the Mount Vernon Square neighborhood, Peebles Corporation was mandated to construct workforce housing.
However, as the Washington Post reported in August, there is some discrepancy as to the number of affordable units required. The original deal called for 61 units, while the developer has cited previous input from the Historic Preservation Office as being amenable to a 40-unit project.

While it seems that Peebles has conceded to the city on the final number of units, the development team is moving forward with delivering affordable housing (possibly for seniors, UrbanTurf has learned) with a new building at 2100 Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue SE (map).
The development team, which includes Dantes Partners and WDG Architecture, has submitted drawings to the Historic Preservation Review Board (HPRB) for what appears to be a four-story building with a setback fifth floor. There would also be 12 spaces of underground parking.
A second option has also been sketched out; the design here has smaller cornices, omits railings in order to extend the vertical bays and would use a light-colored brick for the fourth story.
