(Washington, DC) – On Wednesday, October 25 at 11 am, Mayor Muriel Bowser will be joined by community members to break ground on the construction of 93 units of affordable senior housing at the Lisner-Louise-Dickson-Hurt Home in Friendship Heights. The project is the first project west of Rock Creek Park to be partly funded by the District’s Housing Production Trust Fund.
The project supports Mayor Bowser’s goal of adding 36,000 housing units throughout the city by 2025, 12,000 of which are affordable. It will also support the District’s energy and climate goals to transition to zero waste, develop net-zero carbon buildings, and to ensure a low-carbon future that benefits all. Once completed, the whole building will include an all-electric heat pump system which will reduce the greenhouse gas emissions of the building by up to 54% and reduce energy bills for the property.
