In response to a District RFP this project proposes a new DC Housing Authority Headquarters for the current DCHA HQ site while adding a substantial development creating a revenue generating vehicle for the department. The project is comprised of a 800-unit apartment building constructed in two phases to allow for the concurrent occupation of the current DCHA HQ and construction of the replacement. The first phase delivers 50,000sf on a ground and second floor for the new DCHA HQ as well as approximately 200 apartment units. The second phase later delivers an additional 600-units of apartment housing with 30% of the total delivered units being affordable housing units. In addition to apartment and office space the project also delivers 25,000-30,000sf of retail space to the NOMA area. Phase 2 includes a large public plaza in line with the NOMA BID plan for a north south pedestrian connector through the block. With several different conditions including a significant frontage on North Capital Street this project was designed to incorporate a number of different material treatments and levels of architectural embellishment establishing itself as a contextual, yet modern addition to the NOMA neighborhood.
