Ground breaking festivities for the House of Lebanon were held at the historic MM Washington School in Washington DC on August 14, 2012. The Cunningham | Quill design team – Principal Scott Matties, Project Architect Jeff McBride and Staff Designer Sylvan Miles – joined the development team of Mission First Housing Development Corporation, Urban Matters, the Mount Lebanon CDC and the Mount Lebanon Baptist Church in welcoming the District leadership to this very special occasion. Inspiring remarks were offered by many including Mayor Vincent Gray, Council Member Michael A. Brown and Deputy Mayor Victor Hoskins underscoring the District’s need for quality affordable housing for seniors that allow long time residents to stay connected to their communities.
