Preserves Nearly 300 Family-Sized Units and Includes DC’s Largest Community Solar Project

(Washington, DC) –  On Thursday, May 3, at 3 pm, Mayor Muriel Bowser will cut the ribbon at the Atlantic Apartment Homes in the Washington Highlands neighborhood of Ward 8. The renovated property, formerly known as Atlantic Gardens and Atlantic Terrace, consists of nearly 300 family-sized units and includes expanded community services, as well as the largest community solar project in the District.

Since coming into office, the Bowser Administration has sparked the creation or preservation of more than 10,800 affordable units, with another 5,200 in preconstruction.
