Hmmm although its great to see development spreading outside of the National Harbor, I don't know if income capped apartments are going to move the needle past where they currently are.


Quote:
The proposed apartment complex, called Livingston Forest, would be located off of Livingston Road near Indian Head Highway in Oxon Hill. The site is currently a wooded area that was once the location for a failed condominium project in 2007, said C.J. Tyree, the vice president of development for the Cleveland-based developer PIRHL.
Quote:
The complex would include 72 rental units in two four-story buildings. Tyree said the majority of the units would be restricted to families earning between $40,000 and $60,000 annually, while the rest would be rented at market rate.

Livingston Road is such a confusing road that has many parts, can you give me an idea of exactly what part of Livingston Road that they are referring to?

True, I don't think putting income cap is a good thing for future development in the area and didn't like the Nbr of unites too, such small number of unites will create a revenue issue resulting in less maintained and regulated complex.

I don't think its a good project for that neighborhood. the area has much more potential than what is proposed.

I don't see a problem with it. Development in southern PG is almost non-existent outside of National Harbor. There is plenty room for more development. I expect there to be a new push for affordable housing elsewhere throughout the county. And besides, what's wrong with someone making $60,000/year? That pretty much includes 90% of white collar jobs. Especially recent college grads. I think it's a great idea. It's not public housing. And given the DC area's high rents, while salaries lag, I think it serves a market that is desperately seeking affordable housing.

I just put my investigative hat on and it looks like it's near Glassmanor. Here is the address that comes up for me when I search:

5570 Livingston Road, Oxon Hill, MD 20745

I am assuming that is accurate. If it is, it would go in line with the idea of redeveloping that area. Having a minimum requirement actually isn't too bad an idea. They maybe trying to find a way to keep the rift-raft out. That area is a good location so it will attract people to move there.

its income max not minimum..Soooo those that are in a higher income bracket wouldn't be able to take advantage. Will be interesting to see how far it gets

The only challenge I see is that for a family in this area 40K to 60K is low which, depending on how and who it is marketed and how they define a "family", could be a plus or a minus. There is already a number of affordable properties around there, so I don't see the benefit of another when they are trying to build the millennial and professional demo. If they were smart they would put an age minimum (senior/empty nesters) on the apts that have the income requirement. We will see.

That range would be very middle class for that area. It seems like that is who they are marketing to. I don't know how those other properties are, but this seem to be geared towards a certain socioeconomic group. When I see the word family and I see that income range, the first thought that comes to my mind is single parent homes who who are professionals. Maybe I'm wrong, but we will see. I am curious how close they are to redeveloping Eastover Shopping Center. I saw some plans last year, but it seems like the changes they are expecting there will take years to put in place.
