11th Street Bridge Park Proposed Design

11th Street Bridge Park Proposed Design

The 11th Street Bridge Park will span the Anacostia River and connect the Navy Yard and the Anacostia neighborhood in Ward 8. But how to ensure the project doesn’t further displace low-income residents in an area already seeing some of the region’s sharpest increases in real estate prices? Project developers are creating a community land trust with the goal of acquiring property and creating permanent affordable housing. We explore the challenges in preserving affordable housing in Anacostia.
