Through a joint venture, THC Affordable Housing, Inc. (THCAH), an affiliate of Transitional Housing Corporation (THC), and Somerset Development Company, LLC purchased and completed renovations of the Fort View Apartments and Webster Garden Apartments, both in Ward 4. The two properties provide a total of 114 new units of affordable rental housing. Both properties have been placed on the National Register of Historic Places and their historic character has been preserved as part of the substantial rehabilitation. To facilitate a program of supportive resident services, community spaces and a computer lab at each property were included in the renovations.
Fort View, a 62 unit apartment complex, is located in the Brightwood neighborhood just across from the historic Fort Stevens off of Georgia Avenue. The development consisted of substantial renovation of two vacant blighted buildings into 62 units of affordable housing. The Ribbon Cutting ceremony was held on June 29, 2011 with Councilmember Muriel Bowser, Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton, and other distinguished community leaders.
