My first official post was about the Park 7 development being built on the corner of Benning Rd and Minnesota Ave NE. The $80 million development will hold over 300 housing units, (some affordable rentals and some market-rate condos), 23,000 square feet of retail space and underground parking. This is located right beside the fairly new DC Government building, which is right beside the Minnesota Ave Metro station. Hopefully the project will revitalize the retail options in the area and bring a much needed renewal to the community.
Here are a few pics of the progress
