[Recall that 1519 North Capitol Street NE was sold to S.O.M.E. earlier this year:
Aurea C. Ortiz to Some Inc., 1519 North Capitol Street NE, Washington DC 20002, Lot41 Square 668, $1,500,000.]
The developments planned for the intersection of North Capitol Street and Florida Avenue NE continue to pile up.
Nonprofit So Others May Eat (SOME) has filed a zoning application to deliver an all-affordable development just south of the Exxon gas station (where a “prominent” development is being planned). The project would replace the 4 two-story rowhouses at 1509-1519 North Capitol Street NE (map) with a 14-story building containing 139 furnished studio and junior one-bedroom apartments affordable to households earning up to 60 percent of median family income (MFI). Some of the apartments could be offered at even steeper levels of affordability, to include households earning up to 30 percent MFI.

Studios and 1 bedroom apts? So no families. The low end would be an income ceiling of $24,650 for 1 person and 28,150 for a household of two. I’m not great at math but the 50% limits are $41,050 for one and $46,900 for a household of two, so 60% would be a tad more than that.
The mention of amenities in the building, makes me wonder. All affordable, as in 100%?
The proposed look would make that tall townhouse on P St NE no longer the worst eyesore of the block.
Great. SOME has such a record of being a wonderful neighbor. Poopers and drug-dealers rejoice!
