VIDA Senior Residences at Brightwood

VIDA is composed of a 5-story podium construction building with 36 one-bedroom apartments, a community center with commercial kitchen, and the VIDA administrative offices. The project delivers affordable housing for the low-to-moderate income senior population of DC, for which there is a continually high demand. Other programmed spaces and amenities include laundry facilities, library, conference room, and an occupiable green roof terrace which can support outdoors assembly functions. Completed in 2011, and with a construction cost of $4.8M, the project incorporates sustainable practices such as solar PV-ready design, permeable site paving, and storm water retention via the green roof.
