Project Pipeline

33 K Street NW: MRP Realty, CSG Urban Partners, and Taylor Adams Associates are redeveloping two District parcels, including the former Temple Courts, totaling 3.5 acres. Construction of 220 mixed-income apartments is underway, and the phased project will ultimately yield 738 residential units and approximately 56,000 SF of retail across three buildings.


Other New Developments

  • Banner Lane: Arriving in 2022, the first phase of the 6.7-acre Sursum Corda redevelopment will bring 561 new residential units in two buildings to the community. Future phases of the redevelopment will offer an additional 682 units in two mixed-use buildings.
  • L Street & New Jersey Avenue NW: The site of a District-owned surface parking lot, this 15,000 SF parcel has the potential to be redeveloped as part of a faith- based housing initiative in collaboration with Southern Baptist Church.

New Communities Initiative

The New Communities Initiative is a DC government program, managed by the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development, to revitalize severely distressed subsidized housing, create vibrant mixed-income communities, and assist with addressing residents’ needs. Approximately 500 units across three buildings (SeVerna I, SeVerna on K, and 2M) have delivered to date with hundreds more in the pipeline.
