Webster Gardens Before & After
Webster Gardens, a 52 unit apartment complex, is located in the Petworth neighborhood of Ward 4 near the Old Soldier’s Home. This historic building was the first Garden style apartment building in Washington, DC by Allen E. Walker in 1921. THCAH’s renovations restored and preserved the historic character of the four building complex, abated the extensive environmental hazards that previously existed and provided new community space to facilitate resident services.  Additionally, Webster Gardens was updated with more efficient heating and cooling systems, kitchens and baths. The project preserves affordable housing for the 28 original households, many of whom are seniors, and secures affordability for them in the future. Clients at Webster Gardens have access to resident services, including: employment services, youth enrichment, community building, heath & wellness, and tenant education.
