Affordable Housing Creation in Washington, D.C.
A panel provided recommendations aiming to increase the supply of affordable housing in one of the District of Columbia’s most affluent areas.
This 2019 panel is part of a series of ULI panels that assist some of the nation’s most expensive cities with strategies to increase access to affordable and mixed-income housing.
The panel assignment stemmed from the mayor’s plan to provide 36,000 housing units across the city by 2025, with 12,000 of those being low-and moderate-income units. Panelists evaluated how to distribute the affordable housing units more equitably across the city, with a specific focus on the placement of units in the Rock Creek West area.
