The Skyland neighborhood of Southeast DC was home to Habitat DC-NOVA’s first large-scale development project. Beginning in 1995, we built 34 townhomes in Skyland Terrace.

Constitution Avenue

In 2022, Habitat DC received a generous donation of a two-story walk-up rowhome in Capitol Hill. The property will be turned into two condominiums for a household earning 60%-80% AMI. We look forward to building in Ward 6 and providing two families with an opportunity to purchase their first home.

Habitat DC-NOVA has deep ties to the Deanwood neighborhood of Northeast DC. We began building in Deanwood in 2004, completing a total of 61 homes in the neighborhood to date. Deanwood is also home to the first two Passive Houses that DC constructed, the first of their kind in the District. Our upcoming project at 55th St NE will allow us to return to the neighborhood, adding 17 additional affordable townhomes for local families. 

Morrison’s Way

Habitat DC-NOVA will complete a renovation of a townhome built by Habitat NOVA in 2004. Renovations will include updates to the HVAC and plumbing systems, kitchen renovation, and other improvements throughout the unit. We look forward to supporting another first-time homeowner with this project.

Upcoming Projects

In partnership with L’Arche of Greater Washington, HomeAid National Capital Region, and Arlington County, Habitat DC-NOVA will redevelop the historic Reevesland Farmhouse to accommodate adults with intellectual disabilities and their caregivers.

Glebe View Townhomes at Fairfax Presbyterian Church

  • Location: 10723 Main Street, Fairfax, VA

Habitat DC-NOVA has joined a partnership with Fairfax Presbyterian Church (FPC), HomeAid National Capital Region, and HomeStretch to redevelop a portion of the church’s parking lot into ten townhomes. FPC will provide the land through a long-term ground lease, HomeAid will provide no- to low-cost site work and materials, and Habitat DC-NOVA will be the primary builder. Eight townhomes will be sold affordably to low-income families through the Habitat homeownership program, and two homes will be sold to HomeStretch. HomeStretch will use the two units for their Sacred Homes program supporting families transitioning out of homelessness. The homes will be built to EarthCraft Gold standards and have solar panels.
