On September 27, 2013, Mayor Vincent Gray, Deputy Mayor for Housing and Economic Development Victor Hoskins, D.C. Housing Authority Adrianne Todman, and other officials joined Pam Askew, senior vice president of DC-based William C. Smith and Company, to celebrate the Phase III groundbreaking at Sheridan Station.

Sheridan Station is the three-phase redevelopment of a vacant public housing site in Ward 8 by developer William C. Smith and the D.C. Housing Authority. It will provide 327 units of mixed-income rental and for-sale condominiums and townhouses; the apartment prices range from about $750 to $1,300 per month.

The D.C. Housing Authority was awarded a $20 million HOPE VI grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and a $5.8 million American Recovery and Reinvestment Act grant specifically for "greening" the project. The name "Sheridan Station" is said to have been selected to reflect the community's design as a transit-oriented development near the Anacostia Metro Station.
