On Tuesday, October 9, Mayor Bowser cut the ribbon on The Horizon, the short-term family housing program in Ward 7, marking another step forward in delivering on her promise to close and replace DC General Family Shelter with dignified, service-enriched programs across all eight wards. The Horizon is the second of three short-term family housing programs opening this fall, following the opening of The Kennedy in Ward 4.

At The Horizon, families will have access to service-enriched programming that will help them stabilize and exit homelessness. The site includes 35 family units, computer labs for residents, administrative space for staff and providers, outdoor playground and recreational space, age-appropriate indoor recreation space, a homework and study lounge, and other amenities.

Learn more about The Horizon and the Mayor’s plan to make homelessness rare, brief, and nonrecurring HERE.

Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent for a set dollar amount in various D.C. neighborhoods. Is one person’s studio another person’s townhouse? Let’s find out! Today’s price: $2,500 a month.

↑ In Northeast, these two-bedroom, two-bathroom units at the Brookland Press community start at $2,447 a month. The units are split across two buildings called The Foundry and The Forge that take cues from the neighborhood’s industrial past and offer modern amenities, including stainless steel appliances. The project is up the block from the Metro’s Red Line.

↑ For $2,500 a month, you can rent this updated three-bedroom, 2.5-bedroom house in Historic Anacostia. It has high ceilings, exposed brick, copious natural light, a backyard with a shed, and an unfinished basement for storage. The house is near the intersection of Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue SE and Good Hope Road SE, and the neighborhood’s library.

D.C.’s Golden Triangle emerges as a place to live

If you want to live in or near the area known as the Golden Triangle in the District, you’ll be a bit of a pioneer, but that could change if developers convert more office space into residential buildings.

Therese-Marie and Bill Harkey were enjoying a meal in one of their favorite restaurants in the District last fall when they noticed construction underway across the street. For 32 years, they have been living in Montgomery Village near Gaithersburg, all the while thinking that someday they would live in the city.

“My dream was always to move into the city,” said Therese-Marie Harkey, 66. That dream will become a reality in the next month or two when the couple relocates to 1745N, a new condo and townhouse project on the edge of the Golden Triangle, just south of Dupont Circle. Bill Harkey, 68, is a government contractor working at the Federal Aviation Administration. He commutes to its downtown office.

“I never thought we could afford that area. I dismissed it,” Therese-Marie Harkey said. A former teacher, full-time mom and now an artist, she said she was thinking: “Wouldn’t this be a dream to live here?”

They’ve sold their house in Montgomery Village, trading it for a two-bedroom, two-bath condominium in the Modern Flats, a six-story condominium building at 1745N. “It’s enough for the two of us. I am a minimalist. We’re not coming with a lot of stuff.”

Looking ahead to their new life, she said: “What we really love about them is that they’re so hidden. Like a hidden diamond that nobody knows about.”

“I need the sounds of the city,” she added.
