District Celebrates Grand Reopening of Euclid and Sorrento Apartments

(Washington, DC) – On December 8, the DC Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) joined Jubilee Housing, Ward 1 Councilman Jim Graham, Councilman At-Large Michael A. Brown and Ward 1 residents to celebrate the grand reopening of the Euclid and Sorrento Apartments.    

These two projects preserve 70 units of affordable housing in Adams Morgan.  The Euclid, located at 1740 Euclid Street NW, contains 47 renovated units; and the Sorrento, located at 2233 18th Street NW, is 23 units.  All units are affordable to families earning 60% or less of the Area Median Income. 

Renovations to the properties include new roofing, new energy-efficient appliances, new fire-rated entry doors with deadbolt locks, a new security door entry system and new energy-efficient windows.  Jubilee Housing, the developer for the project, will provide on-site resident services to foster a sense of community between property and the surrounding neighborhood.

“This project is a prime example of how government can partner with the non-profit housing community to leverage private sector investment and preserve quality affordable housing,” said DHCD Director Leila Finucane Edmonds.  “With the support of a broad range of entities, DHCD has developed a strong partnership with Jubilee Housing, a non-profit housing provider in Adams Morgan, and it is wonderful to see these efforts come to fruition.”

DHCD contributed $3.7 million in HOME Investment Partnerships Funding.  DHCD also provided $1 million in Low Income Housing Tax Credit 9% allocation authority that enabled Jubilee housing to raise $7 million of tax credit equity.
