Washington, DC
406-Unit, 31-Building Affordable Housing Community with Robust Social Services Programming

A Closer Look //

Columbia Heights Village is a partnership with the non-profit Change All Souls Housing Corporation (CASHC), formed to preserve the long-term affordability of the community and serve as a model for the future preservation of affordable housing stock. The partnership provided for the renovation of the community and ultimate ownership by the residents and CASHC. The community is composed of three different property types: a ten-story high-rise containing 189 units, 23 garden-style apartment buildings with 210 units, and seven townhomes. Amenities include playgrounds, a community room, retail space, a day care center, and laundry rooms.

I think that’s what this partnership is all about...people working together to accomplish common goals to make everyone’s life better.
