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 protected] or (202) 462-1092.
