Historic Properties Redevelopment Program
The L’Enfant Trust’s Historic Properties Redevelopment Program is D.C.’s first nonprofit real estate developer with a primary mission of historic preservation. By focusing on very distressed properties, the Trust takes on historic rehabilitations that would not be economically feasible for a homeowner or a for-profit developer because the rehabilitation costs exceed fair market value. Our work supports the efforts of residents, community organizations, for-profit and nonprofit developers, and the District to save the irreplaceable fabric of historic neighborhoods in our nation’s capital.
