Washington, DC (November 3, 2013) – When Juanita Jones moved into her newly constructed townhouse on Capitol Hill, she kissed the floors, the walls and the doors, and hoped she would be able to afford to stay. That was in January 1999, when Jones became one of the first residents to move into the Townhomes on Capitol Hill, a federally funded project that replaced the abandoned Ellen Wilson public housing project with mixed-income townhouses.

Baltimore, MD (April 6, 2012) – It’s difficult to walk more than a block or two through Baltimore’s Barclay neighborhood without seeing signs of construction. That’s because Washington, D.C.-based Telesis Corp. is nearing second-phase work on an $85 million project that, when finished, will reinvent the neighborhood bounded by North Avenue, Greenmount Avenue, St. Paul Street and 25th Street.

Telesis is about five years into what was scheduled to be a 10-year project. Although work likely will take longer because of economic conditions, Telesis is steadily building 325 new housing units — an average of one new home for every eight people who live in the neighborhood...
