Just over two years after receiving zoning approval, ground has broken on an all-affordable development a block from DC’s Audi Field.

A ceremony this morning marked the groundbreaking of the 76-unit development at 1550 First Street SW (map). Led by TM Associates in partnership with United Planning Organization (UPO), the 11-story building will also deliver 3,000 square feet of ground-floor retail.

The apartments will be affordable to households earning up to 50% of area median income (AMI), with the exception of 16 units of permanent supportive housing for households earning up to 30% AMI. The unit mix will span from studios to four-bedrooms. UPO will also have an outpost on the ground floor to administer support services to building and neighborhood residents, including job training and placement. There will be 46 below-grade parking spaces.
