Petworths Former Hebrew Home To Become 187unit Affordable Housing Project

Petworths Former Hebrew Home To Become 187unit Affordable Housing Project

The LEED Gold-certified project will soon be known as Spring Flats

This past May, Curbed DC revealed the seven proposals on the table for redeveloping the former Hebrew Home for the Aged in Petworth, located at 1125 Spring Road NW. Now, Bisnow reports that the development team has been chosen. Victory Housing and Brinshore Development will spearhead the redevelopment with a 187-unit affordable housing project.

This project will feature 88 senior affordable housing units, 91 rentals (66 percent affordable), and eight for-sale homes fronting Spring Street NW. The senior housing units will be located in the 1925-built former Hebrew Home, while the rentals will be located in a newly constructed building adjacent to the structure.

Some of the many building amenities planned include a community kitchen, computer room, wellness center, library, exercise room, and arts and crafts room. There will also be off-street parking included.

This LEED Gold-certified community will be called Spring Flats once complete.

The historic building once served Jewish seniors from 1925 until the late 1960s. Afterwards, when the District bought the property for $13 million, the building became a mental health facility for the homeless. Since 2009, the building has been vacant.

In 2010, the Department of Human Services proposed redeveloping the property into a homeless shelter, but Mayor Muriel Bowser shot those plans down. In 2014, there were also plans to redevelop the site with 200 affordable units, but those plans also fell through.
