AHC partnered with Lincoln Westmoreland, a nonprofit affordable housing developer, to renovate its existing 108-unit high-rise building and construct a new 56-unit affordable building on under-utilized adjacent land. The project is AHC’s first partnership in Washington, DC.
Lincoln Westmoreland Apartments is a 10-story high-rise with 108 apartments. The building was constructed in 1970 and is adjacent to the Shaw Metro Station. As part of the development plan, the building received $2 million in upgrades to common areas and residential units. The building is available to households earning up to 60% of the Area Median Income. Eighty-two of the units receive Section 8 assistance.
The development plan incorporated a portion of the existing property to construct a new 8-story building with 56 apartments and ground-floor retail.
The new building, Channing E. Phillips Homes, celebrated its opening in October 2016 and is named after the much-respected, late civil rights leader, Channing Phillips. The 56 apartments are available to households earning no more than 60% of the Area Median Income.
The Logan Shaw Child Care occupies the first floor retail space.
Funding includes a combination of tax-exempt bonds, 4% Low-Income Housing Tax Credit equity, owner equity and District of Columbia grants and subsidized loan.
