Kelsey Gardens Raze Notices, Jefferson at Market Place

I got a tip this morning that raze notices have been posted on the old Kelsey Gardens apartment complex, which was recently acquired by Jefferson Apartment Group ("JAG") and which finally should see the long-planned and approved redevelopment commence soon. 

JAG now has the project listed on their website under the name "Jefferson at Market Place."  JAG describes the project as follows:

Jefferson at Market Place is a mixed-use development located at the corner of 7th and P Streets in Northwest Washington, DC. The project will include 281 luxury apartments, 230 below-grade parking spaces, and 13,400 square feet of retail space.

Jefferson at Market Place will feature modern amenity spaces that will include a boutique-style lobby with a 24-hour concierge, state-of-the-art fitness center, resident business center, and community lounge with bar and gaming areas. Residents will also have exclusive access to two private courtyards on the ground floor, a landscaped roof deck on the seventh floor, and a large pool deck on the 8th floor roof.

Jefferson at Market Place is located less than three blocks north of the Washington Convention Center Metro Station and two blocks south of the Shaw-Howard Metro Station. The project has tremendous visibility with over 455 feet of frontage along 7th Street NW and will be located adjacent to the future City Market at O, a 1 million square foot mixed-use project anchored by a new 58,000 square foot Giant Supermarket.

Out of the 281 units, will there still be 54 set aside for low-income tenants (below 60% of the area median income)? I grew up in that neighborhood, and would hate to see all low-income long-time residents slowly pushed out.

I believe that there will indeed be at least 54 affordable units (as I think all 54 of the families displaced from Kelsey Gardens have vouchers to return to the new development).
