1518 W Street, SE is Under Contract!

We are thrilled to share the news that a current resident of Ward 8 is under contract to purchase 1518 W Street, SE. 

We are so delighted that this lovely house will soon be home to a family in the community, and continue to feel deeply grateful to everyone that supported the work of bringing it back to productive use while honoring the architectural heritage of Historic Anacostia through careful restoration.  

Warmest wishes to the new homeowners for many happy returns in this sweet place!


As they near completion, our HPRP projects have received some attention in the past several weeks, including an article written by an Anacostia resident for Greater Greater Washington as well as this one in WTOP.

Community Forklift also highlighted our partnership through their Community Building Block Program, which enabled us to acquire free surplus shower tile for the bathrooms of 1518 W Street, SE, 1326 Valley Place, SE and 1648 U Street, SE. 

The penny tile on the floor of those bathrooms was generously donated by Architectural Ceramics.

Special thanks to The 1772 Foundation whose ongoing support of the Historic Properties Redevelopment Program continues to make these rehabilitation projects possible.
