Planned Monroe Street Market building in Brookland alters look

The new building will be a red color rather than an orange color

Since Monroe Street Market opened in Brookland in October 2014, the neighborhood has been booming with new developments and higher home values. The $200 million mixed-use project has brought a total of 720 residences, 83,000-square-feet of street-level retail, and 20,000-square-feet of amenity space across three buildings. UrbanTurf now reports that the final building planned for the project has a new look and a few modifications.

Located at Block E between 7th and Monroe streets NE, the plans originally called for a six-story building with 23,000 square feet of ground-floor retail, topped by 156 multi-family residential units. 171 parking spaces were also planned.

The project for Block E now calls for adding a second residential lobby, creating a larger landscape buffer by the property on Lawrence Street NE, and lowering the number of planned parking spaces to 99 parking spaces.

For a look at past renderings of the project, be sure to check out UrbanTurf.
