City Paper's Housing Complex blog reported last week that the DC Housing Authority is investigating the possible sale of 10,000 square feet of Capper/Carrollsburg land on the Square 767, the block bounded by 3rd, 2nd, I, and K, "to a private developer to construct market-rate condominiums, and then to use that money to help build an all-affordable apartment building, with 48 units, on an adjacent parcel."
CP: "The plan would speed up the construction of the delayed replacement units, for which funding has been a sticking point. But it would also mean separating the affordable and market-rate units into separate buildings, which some neighbors see as a violation of the spirit of the Hope VI redevelopment, which has seen low-income and market-rate units blended together throughout the neighborhood."
While no developer has officially been named, I would note that an observant blogger noted back in March that a soil boring permit on the block now in question had been issued to EYA, developer of the Capitol Quarter townhomes that make up the bulk of the reconstructed Capper footprint.
ANC commissioner David Garber has made clear his displeasure with the Housing Authority's lack of pursuit of community input on this plan, and is also quoted by City Paper saying that the proposal is "a pretty big change from people's expectations." At its December meeting, ANC 6D voted to "express our disapproval of the planned sale."
In response to the article, DCHA emphasized that this move would not change the overall mixed-income approach for Capper's redevelopment, and added, "we believe additional homeownership options will be good for the community."
This is not as yet a done deal, with DCHA saying that at this point they have just asked their board for permission to explore the possibility.
In the Hope VI plans for Capper as approved by the Zoning Commission back in 2004, this block and the two blocks to the south, which run along the eastern edge of Canal Park, are to house for apartment buildings totaling 613ish mixed-income units. Two additional buildings--on the former site of the trash transfer station at New Jersey and K and on the old Capper Seniors site at 7th and L on Square 882--would add another 510ish mixed-income units.

Separate apartment buildings for low-income people and higher income people is a very bad idea for everyone concerned. The rest of Capitol Quarter is working very well with truly mixed units. Let's stick with the promise. How can we get our voices heard on this?

I agree. I am scheduled to close on a property in the area this month, and am very concerned about this development.

The one part of this story that makes sense to me is the notion that additional home ownership opportunities would be a good idea for the neighborhood. With the influx of rentals slated to come on the market, I think that the neighborhood could probably benefit from at least one more condo building.

With that in mind, EYA really would make an excellent developer for a project that involves a mixed-income condo building along the lines of the neighboring Capitol Quarter townhouse community. Surely a building can be designed in a manner that harmoniously combines lower-income units and "workforce" condos along with market-priced condos, no?

This makes more sense to me than simply devoting an entire building to private development and then sequestering the lower-income commitments to another building. The integration of the different income levels - especially the middle-income level - is really the key to success for neighborhoods like this one. It seems like most of the negative reaction is (rightly) due to the concern of creating a glorified "project". Considering all of the low-income units that still need to be built amongst the remaining Capper/Carollsburg footprint (192?), it would take a lot to convince me that devoting an entire building to private development is in the long-term interests of the overall community.
