Takoma Place Apartments

Constructed in 1953, the Takoma Place Apartments are adjacent to the Walter Reed Army Hospital Campus along a gentrifying corridor in the Nation’s Capital. On 2017, NHPF worked with the Takoma Place Apartments Tenants Association to acquire the property using the District of Columbia’s Tenant Opportunity to Purchase Act (TOPA). Takoma Place consists of seven, four-story apartment buildings. Its garden-style complex is located across the street from the former Walter Reed Medical Center, which is being redeveloped into a 3.1 million square foot mixed use campus.

NHPF and the Tenants Association are partnering to undertake a $31.7 million rehabilitation of the property using low income housing tax credits as well as subsidies provided by DC Government.
