In case you missed it, DC passed a law last year to increase affordable housing
In case you missed it, late last year the DC Council passed the Disposition of District Land for Affordable Housing Amendment Act which requires residential buildings on District-owned land with 10 units or more and near a Metro station, major bus route or streetcar line, to set aside 30 percent of units for affordable housing. The bill was first introduced in 2013. The law is expected to affect the new Walter Reed redevelopment. The law is expected to address the dire need for affordable housing in the District of Columbia. The law is expected to also increase the cost of development for affected properties.
