Capper Seniors, Old and New
As part of the Hope VI grant for the Capper/Carrollsburg area, two new apartment complexes have been built: Capper #1, the $17.3 million 162-unit building at 900 5th Street, was started in March 2005 and completed in December 2006; construction on Capper #2, a 139-unit companion at 400 M Street to the existing Carroll Apartments building, began in December 2005, with move-ins starting in November 2007--zoning changes have been approved to also allow non-senior workforce-level-income renters (up to 60 percent of area median income) to also apply for residency at Capper Building #2. Demolition of the Capper Seniors complex at 7th and M began in November 2007.
