WIN Leaders Cynthia Eaglin and Rufaro
Jenkins (pictured above), tenants of the

celebrated the 2018 groundbreaking of 220
units at the site. The grand opening took
place in April '19.
After WIN organized community
meetings, a petition, and a 150-person
action with Councilmember Nadeau in
2016, 1225 Spring Road in Petworth will
house 148 affordable housing units.
1 1 00 Park Place
WMATA plans to sell land it owns,
including this Columbia Heights dog park,
to the highest bidder. WIN plans to hold
WMATA up to the same affordable housing
standards of the city.

This boarded-up building previously
housed 33 units of affordable housing, and
WIN is pushing for its redevelopment.
31 49 1 6th St. NW
Emory Beacon Center
WIN member Emory UMC and Emory
Beacon of Light, in partnership with The
Community Builders, worked for over a
decade to build this mixed-use project with
99 affordable units on church land. Despite
a last-minute snag requiring WIN
congregations to help support the project at
the Historic Review Board after the site was
declared too historic to alter, community
members never gave up the fight. The
project finally broke ground in 2016. They
celebrated the grand opening in March '19.
WIN wants DC officials to unite and press
NPS to turn over this vacant property at
Embassy No. 10 to DC government for
affordable housing development.
