New Details Emerge On Ellis And MRP’s 965 Florida
New filings with the DC Zoning Commission provided another look at the partnership’s plans for the development, including a 51k SF Whole Foods anchoring a U-shaped building with 343 parking spaces and up to 160 bicycle parking spaces. The residential component will include both market-rate and affordable apartments, and offer amenities including a central courtyard, a rooftop pool and a rooftop community garden.
MRP and Ellis are planning to spend about $3.4M on various community initiatives as the project comes to life, the Washington Business Journal reports. That includes about $1.5M to construct a private extension of Bryant Street NW. Additional benefits will include $750k to redesign the intersection of Florida and Sherman avenues, and $250k for streetscape improvements.
