The CADA Redevelopment Project Area established in 1978 included the Capitol Area, and the boundaries were roughly L to R Streets and 6th to 17th Streets. In 2002, the CADA Redevelopment Project Area boundaries were amended to include the R Street Area, R to S Streets and 10th to 19th Streets.

Disposition and Development
In the Capitol Area, CADA serves as a disposition agent for the state-owned properties that are designated for new residential/mixed use development. CADA does not serve a similar function in the R Street Area because the land is not state-owned and is for the most part in private ownership.
Of the 22.53 acres of state-owned lands designated for new residential/mixed-use development in the Capitol Area, 17.63 acres have been disposed of and there is a total of 4.90 acres to be developed. CADA Development follows a specific process.

In the Capitol Area, CADA is tasked with implementing the residential and neighborhood commercial components of the Capitol Area Plan and, through its development of state-owned land, meeting a specific housing production goal. In the R Street Area, CADA is tasked with facilitating mixed-use transit-oriented development by constructing public infrastructure improvements and removing development impediments through such efforts as toxic remediation and providing technical/financial assistance to entities seeking to develop property in the R Street Corridor. CADA is not tasked with meeting a specific housing production goal in the R Street Area.
In the Capitol Area, 25% of the units located on property leased by CADA from the Department of General Services or on property sold to CADA by the Department of General Services must be affordable to low income households from inception. In the R Street Area, CADA is required to assure at least 15% of all units developed by entities other than CADA are affordable to low or moderate income households with not less than 40% of these units affordable to very low income households by build-out. CADA is also required to assure at least 30% of all units that it develops are affordable to low or moderate income households with not less than 50% of these units affordable to very low income households.
