The Hampshire

56 units of affordable, family housing undergoing renovation in Washington, DC (Ward 4).

Project Summary

The Hampshire currently offers 53 garden-style walk up apartments in three-story buildings in the walkable neighborhood of Fort Totten in Washington, DC (Ward 4). Through a request for proposal (RFP) and selection process, the tenants of 5000 and 5040 New Hampshire Ave NW selected Wesley Housing to be their designated developer for the rehabilitation of the property.

The tax-credit financed rehabilitation plan is a combination of production and preservation, including the addition of three new units, modernization of the existing units, creation of a community room, and various “green” upgrades such as a solar system and high-efficiency LED lighting.
