Park Morton, a 174-unit public housing community along the Georgia Avenue corridor, is slated for redevelopment into a new, mixed-income and mixed-use development as part of the District’s New Communities Initiative. The city has proposed using part of the Bruce Monroe site (along Georgia Avenue, between Irving and Columbia), to replace existing units at Park Morton, minimizing the displacement of Park Morton residents during redevelopment. There are also opportunities to preserve and improve park/green space at both sites, add retail and community amenities.
