Kemp Workforce Excellence Includes Townhouses

The latest issue of Urban Land magazine includes an article, not yet available online, about developments of affordable housing near employment centers that in 2010 were named Jack Kemp Workforce Housing Models of Excellence, two of which included townhouses.  Capitol Quarter Phase I, occupying 4 blocks in Washington, DC was developed by EYA with participation by Forrest City Residential, Urban-Atlantic, DC Housing Authority, and HUD.  It includes 77 market-rate townhouses, which subsidized workforce and public housing units "indistinguishable from the exterior".  The article also mentions Fire Clay Lofts in Denver, CO developed by Urban Ventures.  "The project has attracted a pioneering resident base to the traditionally industrial neighborhood just north of Denver's central business district.  The resident profile is as eclectic as the unit mix.  Many operate businesses from their homes, including many people from the creative fields."  Join ULI!
