Ronette Slamin is project manager based in POAH’s Mid-Atlantic office, working on the Barry Farm redevelopment initiative, a DC New Communities Initiative project located in Southeast Washington, DC.
Slamin is responsible for leading components of the Barry Farm redevelopment from pre-development through construction. The project consists of the redevelopment of DC Housing Authority owned Barry Farm Apartments (432 units) and the adjacent Wade Road Apartments (12 units). The two properties are being consolidated and transformed into a vibrant mixed-use, mixed-income community that will create 1,100 for-sale and rental apartments. The development will also contain approximately 40,000 square feet of common space for retail use, a community resource center, a 2.4-acre central park, and new public infrastructure..
Slamin will play a leading role in community engagement activities with Barry Farm residents and the broader community.
Slamin also assists the POAH team with the refinance/recapitalization of assets in the mid-Atlantic and the feasibility analysis/underwriting of new POAH transactions in the area.
In her last position, Ronette was a project director with the Corcoran Company in Boston, where she was responsible for entitlements and managing the design and construction process for large multifamily development projects. She was instrumental in leading all facets of a $125 million public - private partnership between Corcoran and the Chelsea Housing Authority – a project similar in scope to Barry Farm.
Slamin holds a Master of Science degree in Real Estate Development and City Planning from MIT and an undergraduate degree from Boston College.
In Boston, she was an active member in the Urban Land Institute’s Young Leaders Group (YLG) and the Builders of Color Coalition (BCC), which is affiliated with AAREP in DC.
