A meeting to discuss updates for the¬†Jair Lynch Development Partners¬†project at 15th and V Streets NW is scheduled for Wednesday, September 26, from 6:30 until 8:30 pm at the Paul Laurence Dunbar Apartments (2001 15th Street NW).
Over the past year, the development group¬†has been working with the residents’ association of the¬†Paul Laurence Dunbar Apartments to recapitalize and renovate the building, which holds a status as affordable housing for senior citizens.
In November, 2011, the¬†Historic Preservation Review Board approved the concept design for the renovation that includes¬†95 residential units in nine-stories with two levels of underground parking. The building will also feature a fitness room, a roof deck and environmentally friendly finishes (the developers are currently seeking¬†Energy Star Certification).
Eighty-seven units in the building will be available at market price; eight units will be affordable homes, with prices and income restrictions determined by the¬†DC Department of Housing and Community Development.
Next steps for the project include quarterly meetings with ANC 1B-04 Deborah Thomas and ANC 1B-05 Mary Streett (and¬†their constituents) to provide an update on the status of the project and to¬†continue the discussion of what can be expected once a building permit is issued¬†and construction commences.
For more information on this week’s project meeting, contact Kaleena Francis at¬†email@example.com¬†or (202) 462-1092.
