After breaking ground in 2014, the John and Jill Ker Conway Residence with permanent supportive housing for homeless veterans and for households that make less than 60 percent of the area median income opened this week. Designed by Washington, D.C.-based firm, Sorg Architects, the 14-story structure features 124 efficiency units with a gym, conference room, and ground-floor retail space.
According to Washington City Paper, the $33 million project is due, in part, to renewed efforts to end veteran homelessness in the city. District of Columbia mayor, Muriel Bowser, attended a ribbon cutting ceremony and complimented the work on her social media.
Bravo, housing for people exiting homelessness in the shadow of the Capitol. https://t.co/N3dE5VxBlc— MurielBowser (@MurielBowser) January 12, 2017
