(WASHINGTON, DC) – On Thursday, May 18, at 10:30 am, Mayor Muriel Bowser will participate in the groundbreaking ceremony for South Capitol Street Apartments, a new development project that will bring 195 affordable apartment units, ranging from efficiencies to three-bedrooms, and 5,000 square-feet of community space to the Bellevue neighborhood in Ward 8.

All units in South Capitol Street Apartments will be reserved for households at or below 60 percent Area Median Income (AMI), and 78 units will be restricted to households at or below 30 percent AMI and targeted to formerly homeless individuals and families in need of permanent supportive housing.
