The Terrell

Washington, DC

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).
