D.C. Housing Authority Proposes Plans for 14 Properties (District of Columbia Housing Authority)

From the District of Columbia Housing Authority's (DCHA) website: 

The D.C. Housing Authority has released a sweeping proposal to remove about a quarter of its public housing stock from federal ownership and demolish or gut ten apartment buildings.

Under a long-awaited plan to deal with the District’s dangerously dilapidated public housing facilities, DCHA would completely demolish and rebuild five properties. Another five complexes would be gutted and/or partially demolished. The city would seek financing and partnerships from the private sector, and convert the buildings into other forms of affordable housing.

“Anything that’s uninhabitable or untenable, we want to figure out how to move them to a safe space,” says DCHA director Tyrone Garrett of the plan, which needs to be approved by the DCHA Board of Commissioners.
