Royal Courts Apartments
Jair Lynch, in partnership with AHD, Inc. and Franklin Capital Group, completed the redevelopment of the former Bowling Green Apartments in Southeast Washington, D.C. in 2004. The project is comprised of 100% affordable rental homes, with 126 units of one, two and three bedrooms, as well as two bedroom units with lofts. Layered public capital and thoughtful architecture were employed to turn the 13 abandoned buildings into back-to-back townhomes where every resident has a front door facing the street. The project was re-named Royal Courts by the students of neighboring Ballou High School, who participated in Jair Lynch’s Construction Site Visit Program and monitored the progress of the building while also learning about the history of the Congress Heights neighborhood.
