More affordable housing is on its way to Mt. Vernon Triangle, this time with a design meant to be interpretation of Manhattan’s Flatiron Building. UrbanTurf reported that Capitol Vista Community Partners filed a zoning application to construct a mixed-use project on a triangular site, bordered by New Jersey Avenue NW and Second and H streets NW.
If approved, the project will house 104 apartments above 3,200 square feet of ground-floor retail. The all-affordable project will include a mix of studios as well as one- and two-bedroom units. 16 units will be for those households earning up to 30 percent of the area median income (AMI), while 16 will be for those making up to 50 percent AMI, with the final 72 for those up to 60 percent AMI.
The project won’t have a parking garage or any parking spaces, but it will include amenities like bicycle parking and a club room and gym.
