Mayor Bowser & DC Housing Authority to Cut the Ribbon on Long-Awaited Northwest One

Sunday, December 18, 2022
The first on site New Communities Initiative building to welcome residents back home

(Washington, DC) On Monday, December 19 at 12 pm, Mayor Muriel Bowser, the DC Housing Authority, the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development (DMPED), and community members will cut the ribbon on The Rise at Temple Courts, the long-awaited first phase of Northwest One at 2 L Street NW in Ward 6. The Rise at Temple Courts will deliver 220 residential units, including 65 replacement units, 85 affordable dwelling units (ADUs), and 11 permanent supportive housing units.   

The New Communities Initiative – which began during the Administration of Mayor Anthony Williams – was conceived to revitalize severely distressed public housing and the surrounding neighborhoods into vibrant, mixed-income communities. Celebrating the ribbon cutting of The Rise at Temple Courts, Mayor Bowser is delivering on a project that has been years in the making and a significant milestone in bringing residents back to the Northwest One community.
