Housing Revitalization Work
Monsenor Romero Apartments
The Monsenor Romero Apartment building, once known as the Deauxville Apartments, is located in the Mount Pleasant historic district of Washington, DC. Half of the building burned down in March of 2008. It originally had 102 efficiency units. What remains is the southern twin portion built circa 1920s and the connecting tower built circa 1950s. The building demising walls and units will be gutted to redesign the existing plan to provide for 60-65 new apartment units ranging from efficiencies to three bedrooms. Accessible and visual/hearing impaired units will also be provided. The building will also include a leasing office, a community space, a computer lab, shared laundry facility, and support spaces. The total square footage of the building will be restored to the original 57,000 SF, which was the size of the building prior to the fire. Monsenor Romero received a Green Communities certification.
