In Ward 7’s Lincoln Heights neighborhood, there are plans to redevelop a 70,712 square-foot site with a surface parking lot into an approximately 100-unit affordable housing project.
Located at 601 50th Street NE at the western edge of the Progressive National Baptist Convention, Inc. campus, the proposal is comprised of one-, two-, three-, and four-bedroom units. All of the units will be for households with incomes not exceeding 60 percent of the area median income.
“Out of the apartments, 35 would be replacement units for residents of the nearby Lincoln Heights and Richardson Dwellings. There would be a total of 56 one-bedrooms, 32 two-bedrooms, nine three-bedrooms (eight of which would be replacement units) and three four-bedrooms (all of which would be replacement units).”
Amenities in the project include 48 below-grade parking spaces, 34 bicycle spaces, as well as a gym, business center, and rooftop terrace. Courtyards will also be developed.
The project is headed by Progressive National Baptist Convention (PNBC) who teamed up with Atlantic|Pacific Communities and UrbanMatters Development Partners.
