Where We Build

Since Habitat for Humanity of Washington, D.C. was founded in 1988, we’ve built and rehabilitated decent, affordable homes in all four quadrants of the District, helping to shelter more than 200 families.  We are constantly searching for buildable sites and have a team dedicated to finding the next property to develop.

Ivy City

Currently under construction

We are about to complete 11 additional units in Ivy City on and around Central Place. We are actively looking for families to purchase 1862 Central Place NE and 1845 Central Place NE.

Past work in Ivy City

In 2010, DC Habitat began construction on new affordable homes in the Ivy City neighborhood of Northeast Washington. Construction was completed on 6 new units and 6 rehabs on and around Providence Street, as well as 16 additional units in the same area. These 2 and 3-bedroom homes were sold to families in need who were willing and able to partner with DC Habitat.

We are one of four developers that were awarded land grants from the District, along with funds from the first round of the Neighborhood Stabilization Program, to produce more than 50 units of mixed income housing in the Ivy City community.

Additionally, DC Habitat has built passive townhomes in this community, using and expanding upon what we learned during our participation in the 2011 Solar Decathlon. These highly energy efficient houses will offer families significant reductions in the costs required to maintain them, in addition to many other benefits.


A snowy Ivy City, Phase 3

A largely industrial area in the central portion of Northeast Washington, Ivy City has long faced great challenges. It is one of the city’s oldest and smallest communities – and home to a collection of houses dating back more than one hundred years. Along its triangular borders are the Amtrak Ivy City Yard/New York Avenue Northeast, Gallaudet University and the Mt. Olivet Cemetery. The neighborhood is also a short distance from the newly revitalized Atlas District (H Street Northeast), teeming with new restaurants, bars and other businesses.

Ivy City was the Washington, DC site for the Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project 2010.
