IDS DC Inc.
Kentucky Courts was a condemned property in the late 1990s due to poor site design, serious architectural problems, and criminal activity. As a result, residents had to be relocated.
IDS completed the demolition of the abandoned existing public housing project and created a new mixed income townhome community. Twelve of the homes were reserved for public housing residents while the balance were sold to market rate buyers. Prices ranged from $260,000 to over $1 million.
The site is immediately adjacent to the Capitol Hill historic district and sensitivity to the existing streetscapes and architecture were critical.
