WASHINGTON, D.C. – Affordable housing is steadily disappearing in the DC area, but nonprofits, religious organizations and a host of others are doing their best to fight that trend. That’s why we’re excited to present our New Era of Affordable Housing: What’s next for the Baltimore-Washington Metro this Thursday, June 18 at the Renaissance DC Downtown, starting at 7:30am. Meantime, here are some new and upcoming developments that are trying to keep the District’s lower-income residents in town.
Location: 909 S Dinwiddie St, Arlington
Developer: Arlington Partnership for Affordable Housing
Development Cost: $30.9M
Open: Early 2014
APAH’s award-winning development was built on county-owned land next to a sparkling new community center. The Arlington Mill Residences had thousands on its waiting list months before it opened, and it did not disappoint: it’s won numerous since, including ULI’s Trend Award for Excellence in Housing Development. APAH has other projects in the pipeline: The Springs near Ballston and Columbia Hills, down the street from Arlington Mill.
