Homeownership

D.C. Offers Two Low- to Moderate-Income Homes for Sale in Historic Anacostia

In September, two homes on Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue in southeast D.C. were rehabilitated as part of an effort to transform and make available for purchase, formerly vacant and blighted properties in the historic Anacostia community.

At that time, D.C. Housing and Community Development Director Polly Donaldson also previewed an adjacent 15,000-square-foot lot designed for the construction of three single-family, semi-detached homes with private driveways.

The preview, which followed Mayor Muriel Bowser’s announcement in early September that DHCD would be contributing additional nearby development opportunities, recently culminated in Donaldson releasing the eligibility criteria and process for selling the two renovated homes at 1319 V Street and 1328 W Street in Southeast.

“This affordable homeownership opportunity is all about giving everyone a fair shot at owning their own home,” Donaldson said in a statement. “We have set the prices and affordability levels of these homes where we know the market is not producing units of this size. To offer such large size units, and for them to be affordable in perpetuity, is exactly what we want for this historic project in such a storied community.”
