workforce housing

heres an article about housing that aims to diversify.....in this case, drawn the middle class.

The project inverts the traditional notion of housing subsidies because it isn't aimed at low-income buyers.


We're trying to create diversity in the southeast quadrant of the city, to break up pockets of poverty," said Leo Clarke, special projects coordinator at the D.C. Department of Housing and Community Development, which gave the developers a grant toward the cost of preparing the land for construction. "We're trying to encourage investment in an otherwise blighted area."
