Hubbard Place

The building, which was constructed in the late 1920’s and has been placed on the National Register of Historic Places, recently underwent a historic renovation by Somerset Development Company, with the affordable rents preserved for all the tenants living there.

Mayor Adrian Fenty officiated at the ribbon cutting on April 27, 2009, and the renaming of the Cavalier Apartments to “Hubbard Place” in honor of community leader Leroy Hubbard, whose career was dedicated to rebuilding 14th Street after the civil disorders of 1968. The newly renovated building is a nine-story mid-rise with 230 apartments with ground floor retail and office spaces, located just blocks from the new D.C. USA retail complex, Tivoli Theater, and the Columbia Heights metro line.

The renovations and the new on-site resident services have transformed this once very distressed property into a vibrant new community which is safe and secure, making the property once again an asset to the neighborhood.
