Vista will be a 100 percent affordable community with 3,000 square feet of ground floor retail and space for public art. All 104 of the new residential units will be set aside for households earning up to 50 percent of the median family income (MFI) or $58,600 for a family of four.

This groundbreaking is part of #RootstoRoofs Housing Week, a series of events highlighting the Bowser Administration’s progress in creating and preserving affordable housing options across the District. The variety of options showcases the Mayor’s commitment to providing all Washingtonians a fair shot and a pathway to the middle class.
