218 Vine – A Look at the 400 Units Planned in Historic Takoma, and the 1,200 in the Works at Walter Reed

DC Urban Turf

April 28, 2021

DC’s Takoma neighborhood could have quite a few active construction sites in the coming years, compensating for a lack of new housing construction in neighboring Takoma Park and Shepherd Park. On the other side of Georgia Avenue, the old Walter Reed campus is also poised to deliver some major components this year.

Below, UrbanTurf jogs our memories on the residential pipeline for upper Georgia Avenue and Takoma.

In case you missed them, here are the other neighborhoods we have covered so far this year:

218 Vine Street

Across the street, Jair Lynch Real Estate Partners and non-profit Housing Up broke ground in March on this 129-unit affordable senior project. Eighty percent of the units in the five-story building at 218 Vine Street NW (map) will be affordable to households earning up to 60% of area median income (AMI) and the remainder permanent supportive housing for households earning up to 30% of AMI. The building will also have 39 below-grade parking spaces and ground-floor support services. KTGY Architecture + Planning is the designer is a partner.
