Construction of The Riggs Crossing Senior Residences, a 93-unit affordable senior housing complex in Northeast D.C., was officially kicked off by Mayor Muriel Bowser and community members.
The project will create 52 apartments for households with incomes below 30% of the median family income and 41 for those between 30% and 50%. Ten apartments will be designated for permanent supportive housing. The project will also include ground floor retail and commercial space, with at least 5,000 net leasable square feet reserved for lease by local retailers.
Bohler DC is providing site civil engineering design and permitting to support the project. D.C.'s Arlington Partnership for Affordable Housing, or APAH, is also supporting the project.
“The regional need for affordable homes is only growing,” says APAH President and CEO, Carmen Romero. “APAH’s goal is to create more homes and provide supportive programming that empowers residents. We’re thrilled to bring our innovative, caring approach to housing seniors in Washington, DC and are thankful to partner with fellow experienced developer, EYA.”
