In the Southeast neighborhood of Randle Heights, there are plans to construct a brand new apartment building with 74 units. If approved, the development, called Ainger Place Apartments, will be built on an approximately two acre site with three lots situated on it. All of the units will be targeted to households making less than 50 percent of the area median income, according to Board of Zoning Adjustment documents. There will be a total of eight permanent supportive housing units for women at risk of homelessness.  


The site at 2409-2412 Ainger Place SE currently houses a parking lot and a 1960s-built apartment building containing 24 partially occupied units. In the Board of Zoning Documents, the currently existing apartment building is described as being in such poor conditions that a renovation would not be economically feasible.

The units will range from one-bedroom units to two- and three-bedroom units. There will be a gym, a lower-level 65-space garage, and a laundry room. There are also plans for a tot lot, courtyard, and a business center and community/club room.

In the Board of Zoning Adjustment documents, it reports that the affordable housing development is part of a faith-based community initiative that has been over five years in the making by the Emmanuel Baptist Church.

The DC Post reports, The Michaels Organisation in partnership with Ainger Place Development Corp is developing 72-unit Ainger Place Apartments in the Randle Heights neighborhood of Washington, D.C. that will provide affordable housing to residents earning between 30% and 50% of the area median income.

About $10.1 million will be invested in low-income housing tax credit (LIHTC) equity in Ainger Place Apartments, the Riverside Capital announced. A vacant space will be filled and an existing building demolished for making the new three-story community apartments.

Featuring 34 single, 30 double, and eight three-bedroom apartments, the housing units will be affordable for households earning area median income. The D.C. Housing Authority will provide subsidy to 18 units (30 percent) under 15-year Local Rent Supplement Program. Women who are in need of permanent supportive housing (PSH) will be provided one-bedroom units which will be reserved for them, according to the officials.

The Michaels Organization will develop and manage the property in conjunction with Ainger Place Development Corp., a nonprofit founded by Emmanuel Baptist Church.

“Ainger Place Apartments will be an example of how Michaels creates communities that lift lives through partnering with community pillars such as Emmanuel Baptist Church and Ainger Place Development Corp.,” said Chris Earley, vice president of development at Michaels.  Read More
