As part of the District’s plan to close the DC General shelter and construct new facilities for homeless residents in all eight Wards of the city, GCS-SIGAL was the design-builder for the facility in Ward 1, the Terrell. The project consisted of a new five-story, 75,600 square-feet, 50-unit building that included 35 two and three-bedroom apartments for families in need of short-term family housing (STFH) and 15 one-bedroom apartments for individuals in need of permanent supportive housing (PSH).
