Phi Beta Sigma and Peebles Corporation Team Up to Make a Difference. The Fraternity has planned to renovate its international headquarters and has decided to add 35 affordable senior apartments above its office space to create affordable housing for the community in Washington, D.C.
According to Urban Turf, the fraternity is looking to replace the two-story headquarters that they have been in since 1975 at 145 Kennedy Street NW. All of the units will be affordable to households earning up to 50% of the area median income, and 20% of the units will be permanent supportive housing for more vulnerable households.
The construction is facilitated by The Peebles Corporation, founded by R. Donahue Peebles, II, a real estate entrepreneur and a member of Phi Beta Sigma.
This project is designed by PGN Architects and the building will include façades that will incorporate elements that reference Phi Beta Sigma symbology.
