Construction Update – 56th Place

In the fall of 2013, we began construction on six new single-family homes at 56th Place and Clay Place in the Deanwood community of Northeast DC. We’re excited to announce that construction on these homes is nearly complete! See the photos below for images and more information about these homes.

This development site is near to our previously completed 54-unit development in the same neighborhood.
