The team here at E-Landscape is excited to once again be working with Maryland-based Mid Atlantic general contractor Hamel Builders, this time on the House of Lebanon in Washington, DC. House of Lebanon is an adaptive reuse project involving redevelopment of The Margaret Murray Washington Career High School (MM Washington), a historic school building located in the Shaw neighborhood of Washington DC. Built in 1912, the school is part of a cluster of African American schools constructed around the same time as middle class African American families, who were restricted from living in other sections of the city by restrictive covenants, moved into the neighborhood in the late nineteenth century.
E-Landscape has been selected to provide design-build services for the development of Dahlgreen Courts, an affordable housing development in Washington, DC. Developed by Mission First Housing Development Corporation (MFHDC), the Dahlgreen Courts project included the preservation of 96 units of affordable housing and the substantial rehabilitation of two historic buildings in the Brookland neighborhood. Designed by architects Weincek & Associates and built by Hamel Builders, Dahlgreen Courts is intended to qualify for Enterprise Green Communities.
