NCHA to Construct
740 Home Units for Colored War Workers Sites on which the National Capi tal Housing Authority soon will be gin construction of a total of 740 new dwelling units for colored war workers and their families were an nounced last night by John Ihlder, executive officer of the Authority. Approximately 300 units, to be known as the Fiftieth Street Dwell ings. will be erected on Fiftieth street S.E. between Benning road and Division avenue. Construction will be permanent in type, Mr. Ihlder said. It will be financed by loans from the Federal Public Housing Authority and sale of bonds to private investors. Another 300 units will be placed on acreage at Stanton road and Alabama avenue S.E., which was purchased by the NCHA more than a year ago. These will be named the Stanton Road Dwellings. The remaining 140 units are to be known as the Savannah Street Dwellings, and will be located across Alabama avenue from the Stanton road project. Senators to See Sites. Members of the Senate subcom mittee investigating housing condi tions here will look at the three sites on their next housing inspec tion tour, slated to begin at 10 a.m. Tuesday. Mr. Thlder expects con struction to begin soon, so that the houses will be ready for occupancy by early spring. On its Tuesday tour the subcom mittee also will visit five o' the NCHA’s completed low-rent housing developments. Four other low-rent properties managed by the Authority were inspected by the subcommittee on a previous tour. The completed developments to be visited Tuesday are the Frederick Douglass Dwellings, Alabama ave nue and Twenty-first street S.E.: [Fort Dupont Dwellings, Ridge and Anacostia roads S.E.; Parkside Dwellings, Kenilworth avenue and Barnes lane N.E.: Langston, at Ben ining road and Twenty-first street N.E., and the Kelly Miller Dwellings, !Second, Fourth. W streets and Oak dale place N.W. All but the Fort Dupont Dwellings are for colored occupancy. Only One on Slum Site. I Of these five properties, only one— I the Kelly Miller Dwellings—was erected on the former site of a slum. The remainder were built on vacant or sparsely settled land. Action by the National Housing Agency Friday to ease the eligibility requirements for occupancy of NCHA war housing was praised last night by Mr. Ihlder. The principal changes in the eligibility rules opened 1,250 vacant public housing units here to occupancy by resident war workers, and waived voluntary agreements under which private war housing now under construction, but being built with priorities obtained before February 10. was to have been reserved for in-migrant war workers. The NHA also said that groups of single workers will be permitted to rent one room and one bedroom public housing units which previous ly have been held for family oc cupancy. Mr. Ihlder called the liberalization of the rules "a long step in the right direction" and predicted that it will enable public housing agencies here to fill 1,250 units. He said, however, he hopes the NHA later will make all war workers, regardless of their length of resi dence here, eligible for any public or private war housing. Despite the liberalization, the rules still limit the eligibility of war workers who moved into this area prior to July 1, 1941. Public housing projects in which units were made available to "resi dent” war workers through the rule change Friday are: Fairway Houses, Calvert Houses, Carry Homes, Lily Pond Houses, George Pickett Homes, Henry G. Shirley Homes and Hillwood Square. All but the Lily Pond Houses are in either nearby Virginia or Maryland. There is no such thing as a blood less victory.
