Earlier this month, APAH reached a high point: Queens Court “topped out”, which means construction of the tallest part of the project is complete.

An original 3-story building from the Queens Court community.

Queens Court used to be a garden-style community of just 39 apartments, but it is being redeveloped into a 12-story building that will provide affordable apartments for 249 households.

The safety and welfare of its employees, residents, associates, contractors and neighbors is APAH’s highest priority.  But, as long as construction services and services to the economically disadvantaged are deemed as essential by DC, Maryland, and Virginia, construction work will continue. The jobsite has implemented heightened health and safety measures in place and is following all recommendations and regulations from CDC and Department of Labor’s OSHA division.

In the months to come, the Queens Court construction team will continue work on exterior sheathing, window installation, exterior masonry, as well as mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems. The project is expected to be completed in 2021.
