Mayor Bowser to Open New Fire and EMS Station and Affordable Housing Preservation Complex at West End Square 50

Thursday, May 11, 2017

(Washington, DC) – On Friday, May 12, at 3 pm, Mayor Muriel Bowser will celebrate the completion of West End Square 50, a new development that will serve as the home for DC Fire and EMS Engine No. 1 and 52 affordable housing units in the Foggy Bottom community. The 110,000 square feet project is a unique multi-use building with a 15,000 square-foot state-of-the-art fire station and affordable housing units for households at or below 60 percent area median income.

As part of Mayor’s Bowser Fiscal Year 2018 Budget Proposal, the Mayor remains dedicated to producing, preserving, and protecting affordable housing by committing another $100 million to the Housing Production Trust Fund. This investment will continue to support grants and loans, thus yielding more affordable housing for DC residents.
