Setting the Standard for
The Park Morton public housing complex in the Park View neighborhood of Washington, DC and is a part of the District’s New Communities Initiative. Park Morton is being developed by The Community Builders Inc. and Dantes Partners with The DC Housing Authority as a joint venture development partner and co-owner. The Park Morton redevelopment efforts will transform the existing 174 units of public housing into a mixed-income and mixed-use development located along the vibrant Georgia Avenue corridor.
The 462-unit redevelopment will be completed in multiple phases and will minimize resident displacement while creating a mixed-income community consisting of public housing, affordable and market-rate units; and features 1-for-1 replacement of the existing public housing units. The onsite Park Morton redevelopment will occur in two (2) phases which will include 189 (148 + 41) units, with a mix of rental and homeownership units, 57 (43 + 14) of which will be public housing replacement units. The offsite redevelopment located known as Bruce Monroe, located four (4) blocks away on Georgia Avenue, will include 273 units, 90 of which will be public housing replacement units. The transformative redevelopment is slated to begin in 2021. The project will be funded by DC Housing Finance Agency, New Communities Initiative Fund – via The Deputy Mayor of Planning and Economic Development and 4% LIHTC equity. *This information is as-of April 2021 and is subject to change.
