Zoning Change Could Give District 2,600 More Affordable Housing Units

An inclusionary zoning expansion would allow developers to build bigger in exchange for more affordable units.

As cranes continue to dot the skyline, there's new reason to be optimistic that D.C. will get more desperately needed affordable housing units over the next few years.
That's because the District's Zoning Commission voted last week to strengthen the city's "inclusionary zoning" program, which gives developers more leeway to construct buildings that are denser than what's typically permitted—in exchange for providing below-market-rate units. If the D.C. Council and Mayor Muriel Bowser approve it, the change would produce upwards of 2,600 affordable units over the next five to 10 years, according to the D.C. Fiscal Policy Institute (DCFPI) and the Coalition for Smarter Growth.
