Brookland affordable senior housing building breaks ground

Girard St groundbreaking

District Mayor Muriel Bowser and other district government officials attended the ground-breaking June 30 of the Girard Street Senior Residences, at 1545 Girard Street NE, the Brookland Bridge reports.

Construction of the four-story affordable senior building is expected to take one year. It is being built on an empty lot at the corner of Girard and 16th streets NE. The building is designed for seniors age 55 and above who earn under 30 percent of the area median income, or just over $100,000 for a family of four. The building is a project of local developers Dantes Partners and The Menkiti Group.

The building will have 25 units, most of which will be one-bedroom units. The building’s common areas will include a demonstration kitchen, exercise studio and walking paths in a garden. There will be some parking spots, as yet unannounced. Government agencies will determine eligibility.
