MASTER DEVELOPER SELECTED
Park View Community Partners and the DC Housing Authority are redeveloping Park Morton and the former Bruce Monroe site into 818 residential units in three phases.
NEW COMMUNITIES INITIATIVES
The New Communities Initiative is a DC government program, managed by the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development, designed to revitalize severely distressed subsidized housing, to create vibrant mixed-income communities and address the human capital needs of residents.
DEVELOPMENT CONTINUES ALONG GEORGIA AVENUE
Since 2010 more than 1.2 million SF of development has been built within a half-mile of Park Morton, including 1,200 residential units and 110,000 SF of retail. As of December 2019, there were another 115 residential units under construction and 3,300+ units in the pipeline.
GREAT STREETS AND MAIN STREETS
Several streets in the area are designated Great Streets corridors. As funds become available small businesses can apply for grants to cover capital improvements and certain soft costs. In 2019, up to $50,000 was awarded per location. The corridor is also supported by the Lower Georgia Avenue Main Street through community-based economic development programs.
