So Others Might Eat’s Highrise Takes on Cycle of Poverty, Homelessness in DC
Non-profit organization So Others Might Eat (SOME) has completed the structural concrete phase of its 14-story affordable residential highrise in Washington, DC. Clark Construction, which has served as a SOME community partner for nearly 25 years, is delivering 1515 North Capitol.
The 139-unit property will provide affordable housing for adults who have been experiencing poverty or homelessness and are committed to reestablishing themselves through programming offered by SOME. The building will include a classroom, library, intake areas, fitness amenities and furnished efficiency-style units.
The development is located a block from SOME’s headquarters so tenants can easily access services and programming.
Affordable housing plays a central role in SOME’s mission to break the cycle of poverty and homelessness in Washington, DC. 1515 North Capitol is the latest and largest of more than 20 properties that SOME provides as place for adults and families to find stability.
The project is slated for completion in October 2023.
