The Greenleaf public housing community in the Southwest Waterfront neighborhood of Washington, DC, is being redeveloped through a partnership consisting of EYA, Pennrose, and the DC Housing Authority (DCHA), and in collaboration with residents and the community.


The Greenleaf redevelopment will transform the existing 493 units of public housing into a mixed-income and mixed-use development with quality, sustainable housing choices to serve a diversity of ages and family needs. The redevelopment will be completed in multiple phases and will minimize resident displacement while creating a mixed-income community consisting of public housing, affordable, workforce, and market-rate options.

Between August 2021 and November 2021, residents and community stakeholders participated in a series of meetings to help Greenleaf District Partners (GDP) and DCHA craft a “Greenleaf Revitalization Plan” that will guide future development activity. This plan is intended to build on the redevelopment vision and priorities developed with stakeholders over the last several years, and to prioritize addressing resident needs. Throughout this planning effort and beyond, GDP is committed to an intentional and inclusive engagement process. The feedback and outcomes from all work sessions culminated in a Final Presentation that was presented to the community on November 10.


The vision for this redevelopment is to create a “model community” that celebrates and retains a diversity of races, ages, and incomes, while delivering modern, sustainable housing and infrastructure improvements that enhance the quality of residents’ lives and help weave Greenleaf into the surrounding neighborhood fabric.
