A new report from the D.C. Policy Center suggests that building more apartments in D.C.’s upper Northwest neighborhoods–where there are many suburban-style single family homes–would help the city keep up with demand for housing from small households and solve the District’s affordable housing crisis. Some also see it as a way to bring more diversity to parts of the city that are largely white and wealthy. But some residents worry about what more development might mean for the character of their neighborhoods. Is the idea of creating a more urban, inclusive city at odds with preserving neighborhood character?
