Liberty Place to Bring 71 New Affordable Apartments to MVT

Friday July 13, 2018

A little rain didn’t dampen the celebratory mood on Friday, June 15 when dozens gathered at Mount Carmel Baptist Church to join Mayor Muriel Bowser and other dignitaries in celebrating the groundbreaking of the Liberty Place Apartments at the corner for 3rd and I Streets NW.

The project features 71 new units of affordable housing—including 11 reserved for those with limited mobility, 14 for formerly homeless individuals and 7 for Veterans—and will contribute to meeting the housing needs for our District neighbors who make between 30-60% of the area median income.
