The nation as a whole is experiencing a lack of affordable housing. This is even made worse by numerous people losing their employment as a result of pandemic-era shutdowns and significant supply-demand disparities.

This situation is the backdrop for the funding and planning of The Paxton. According to information from the 2019 D.C. Housing Equity Report, D.C. is facing a deficit of 5,220 affordable apartments and plans to address this by building 12,000 units by 2025.
