MURILLO/MALNATI GROUP RECEIVES FINAL PERMIT APPROVAL FOR GEORGETOWN PROJECT
MMg announced that it has obtained final permit approval from the Old Georgetown Board for its mixed-use project at 1072 Thomas Jefferson Street in Georgetown. After seven presentations and multiple design modifications in pursuit of the adequate feel and look of the 4-story tower addition to the existing historic structure, the OGB approved the project for permit. "This is the purest example of how developers can work effectively with historic preservation programs within dense urban areas and achieve the best of both worlds" said Julio Murillo, CEO of MMg. MMg will begin construction on the restoration of the historic structure immediately and proceed with the development of the 4-story building in late 2012/early 2013.
