Mayor Vincent C. Gray Breaks Ground on La Casa Project

News—————14 January 2013

We're a little tardy with this news, but better late than never! In late October Mayor Vincent Gray and representatives from Studio Twenty Seven Architecture, along with joint venture partner Leo A Daly, celebrated the ground breaking for the District of Columbia's Homeless Services Program's prototype for Permanent Supportive Housing. Located on the revitalized 14th Street Corridor, this new structure will provide housing for 40 men in a facility designed to attain USGBC LEED Gold Certification. DGS Director Brian J. Hanlon observed that "the new, vibrant and engaging La Casa will change the perception of homeless care the District."
