Community Center at Capitol Quarter
The District built a new community center located at 5th and L St, SE. A survey was taken after data was collected from several community meetings. Left is the bldg under construction.
This building replaced the former Community Center (below, left) which was demolished in 2007 and was slated to be replaced as part of the Hope VI initiative awarded in October 2001.
The Community House must generate enough revenue to support itself and be able to offer free programming to those of modest means. NSCP awarded the Community Center $36.183.00.
There are many important community institutions to be developed in Near Southeast. Click on the contact button above and let us know if you would like to partner with NSC Partners on a new project.
