The level(s) of affordability and subsidy are not noted in the article. Regardless, kudos to all involved! Affordable housing of any sort is very difficult in an expensive market like D.C., even in the far reaches of Northeast. Affordable housing that's decently constructed and has a nod to architectural effort is almost impossible. Great to read about this.
