Event Description:
Join ULI Washington for an in-depth discussion on the toolkit of programs, incentives and mechanisms that are available to public, non-profit and for-profit developers for affordable housing production in the DMV region.
The event will highlight three developments in the DMV region that employed innovative development and financing strategies to preserve and create affordable housing. The case studies will analyze the circumstances that led to the development of the projects, the stakeholders and partnerships involved, and the tools and financing that made the projects work. A question and answer session following the case studies will explore lessons learned and how these case studies can serve as a model for future affordable housing developments in the DMV area.
Following the presentations, guests will be invited to tour one of the case studies, Harlow, a vibrant mixed-income, mixed-used community developed in a public-private venture by Urban Atlantic, Brookfield Properties and the DC Housing Authority as part of the Arthur Capper/Carrollsburg public housing redevelopment. Harlow consists of 143 market-rate units, 36 affordable units and approximately 4,000 square feet of retail. The project was financed using
a combination of DC Housing Production Trust Funds and LIHTC for the affordable units, and conventional financing coupled with EB-5 funding for the market-rate portion.
