Event Details

The DC Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) is holding a public hearing on a property sale that will transform 809-813 Kennedy Street, NW in the Brightwood Park neighborhood of Ward 4 into affordable housing for seniors

The site was in a round of Solicitation for Offers issued by DHCD on June 1, 2016. The property was awarded to Dante’s Partners/Gilbane Development Company JV, LLC, through a competitive selection process. The project will consist of 38 units for seniors. Each one bedroom/one bath unit will be targeted for seniors making no more than $58,600 (50 percent of the Median Family Income for 2018). The project will also contain over 1,000 square feet of ground floor retail.

The public hearing will ensure that citizens are informed about the property sale and have the chance to publicly present their views.
