1/10/20 Historic Anacostia Houses Update

Progress is evident at the three properties that are under active construction! We anticipate being able to list 1518 W Street, SE (2 bedrooms, 1.5 baths) for sale this spring, followed by 1326 Valley Place, SE (4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths) and 1648 U Street, SE (4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths) in late spring/early summer. There will be maximum income restrictions (not to exceed 120% Median Family Income) as well as minimum household size eligibility requirements to ensure that the properties are serving as homes for moderate-income families in the community.

1518 W Street, SE

The exterior has been painted and interior drywall has been installed. We have restored power which will allow the floors to be laid next.

1326 Valley Place, SE

Interior framing is in place and windows have been installed.

1648 U Street, SE

The rear has been rebuilt (reusing the historic brick to face the new foundation) and new framing is in place. The juxtaposition with the historic material in these photos is striking!
