Northwest One

High-quality housing options, new public amenities and easy access to Capitol Hill, NoMa, and Mount Vernon Triangle are accelerating Northwest One’s revitalization.

Blocks from Union Station and a stone’s throw from the bustling 1st Street, NE and H Street, NE corridors, Northwest One is DC’s first New Communities Initiative investment.

Development Pipeline

  • Three developments—Severna I, Severna on K, and 2 M—totaling 507 units (including 137 replacement public housing) have been completed to date on nearby parcels.
  • The DC government issued an RFP for two parcels totaling 3.5 acres of land, including the site of the former Temple Courts, and selected MRP Realty & CSG Urban Partners in December 2017. Plans call for 772 residential units and 56,000 SF of retail.

New Communities Initiative

The New Communities Initiative is a DC government program designed to revitalize severely distressed subsidized housing, redevelop neighborhoods into vibrant mixed-income communities and address the human capital needs of residents.

$27 Million DC Government Investment

The DC government has already made investments in the development of mixed-income housing in this area and is poised to make additional investments in the remaining parcels that are part of the Northwest One plan.
