The Strand Residences

Affordable Housing in Washington, DC

Completed in the first quarter 2021, The Strand Residences will bring 86 affordable apartments (71 one-bedroom and 15 two-bedroom units) to the Deanwood neighborhood. One-third of the units (or twenty-eight units) will be replacement housing for the nearby Lincoln Heights and Richardson Dwelling properties and will be affordable to households who earn less than 30% of the area median income. The building also has two retail bays for neighborhood-based companies, a gym and bike locker, a patio and lounge, and two large community rooms. The Residences is next door to the Strand Theater, a historic landmark that the NHP Foundation intends to renovate in 2020.
