Wesley Housing’s The Hampshire was recently approved for the National Register of Historic Places. This designation recognizes the property as one of the nation’s historic places worthy of preservation. According to the National Conference of State Historic Preservation Officers, “buildings like this demonstrate the importance of building re-use and highlight the role preservation plays in promoting affordable housing solutions.”
The Hampshire is a beautiful, 1935 Tudor Revival apartment building undergoing careful renovations expected to complete in winter 2022. The building will keep its classic façade but have thoughtful modern upgrades including “green” improvements such as a solar energy system and high-efficiency LED lighting.
The Hampshire consists of 56 garden-style walk up apartments in two three-story buildings. Located in the walkable neighborhood of Fort Totten, the community is conveniently located within a 10-minute walk from the Fort Totten Metro Station and close to many shopping centers and restaurants. Upon completing the renovation scope in late spring, the property will house low- to moderate-income families earning at or below 80% of the Area Median Income (AMI).
