A Washington Informer story
D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser announced Wednesday the closing of financing on Barry Farm and that the long-awaited redevelopment of the historic Ward 8 community will get underway in the coming weeks.
Construction is expected to begin next month on The Asberry, a mixed-use building with 108 units of affordable senior (55 and older) housing and about 5,000 square feet of commercial space that will be co-developed by the Preservation of Affordable Housing Inc., and the D.C. Housing Authority.
The Asberry will be located on 1200 Sumner Road SE, across from the Barry Farm Recreation Center. It is expected to be completed in 2024.
