WASHINGTON — The District of Columbia plans to sell $900 million of income tax-secured bonds in November, the biggest amongst a rash of deals closing the calendar year.

The negotiated deal will feature both new money bonds to fund the district’s fiscal year 2013 capital improvements program, an initiative which is slated to cost $1.1 billion over five years, and bonds to refund the 2010 debt supporting infrastructure at the Capper Carrollsburg Housing Redevelopment project in the city’s southeast quadrant. The development, slated for completion in 2017, received a $34.9 million Hope VI federal grant in 2001. It will be a mix of affordable and market-rate apartments in an area the city government is pressing hard to redevelop.
