We’re thrilled to share that The Committee of 100 on the Federal City trustees selected Walter Reed Assisted Living for a 2021 Vision Award. Abrams Hall is the first District-funded project that combines permanent supportive housing and assisted living for seniors in one facility and provides a scalable model for future assisted living facilities for Washington, DC’s most vulnerable seniors.
In addition, Affordable Housing Finance (AHF) announced its 2021 Readers’ Choice Awards Winners, and recognized Abrams Hall as the best overall in senior housing. Notably, AHF recognized Abrams Hall’s innovative plan to include both affordable senior housing and assisted living in the same building so seniors can comfortably change levels of care when necessary.
Abrams Hall Senior Apartments provides 80 units of affordable senior housing. Sixty-four units target seniors below 50% area median income (AMI), and the remaining units target seniors below 30% AMI. Housing Up also supports the operations of Abrams Hall Senior Apartments, consulting on resident services and asset management. In 2019, we were awarded funding to develop 54 units of permanent supportive housing assisted living on the Walter Reed campus, in partnership with the Walter Reed development team. Construction on the assisted living project is underway, with anticipated completion in spring of 2022.
Housing Up partnered with the Walter Reed development team of Hines, Urban Atlantic and Triden Development Group to develop senior housing on the former Walter Reed campus, now known as The Parks at Walter Reed.
Thank you to The Committee of 100 on the Federal City and Affordable Housing Finance for your recognition!
