On Monday, September 28, Mayor Bowser and Ward 8 Councilmember LaRuby May joined WC Smith and their development partners to celebrate the completion of Sheridan Station (#sheridanstation), a 327-unit mixed-income HOPE VI project near the Anacostia Metro Station.
The ribbon cutting marks the completion of 247 rental and 80 homeownership units. The development includes a medical clinic, community rooms, solar panels, Energy Star appliances, on-site parking and a new playground. Built to high standards of sustainability, Sheridan Station includes the first multifamily building in DC to be awarded LEED platinum designation.
“Sheridan Station is a $100 million investment in high-quality transit-accessible housing for residents at a range of incomes,” said Chris Smith, Chairman and CEO of WC Smith. “We think that Sheridan Station will be an asset to the neighborhood, as well as a model for affordable and environmentally-friendly multifamily housing.”
“This new transit-oriented, sustainable community is another example of what we at DCHA strive for – affordable, safe and healthy neighborhoods for our families of all economic levels in the District,” said DCHA Executive Director Adrianne Todman.
