Magic Johnson in Petworth

Park Place Canyon-Johnson Visit 007, originally uploaded by Prince of Petworth.

Thanks to the many, many folks who sent me the Washington Business Journal article about Magic Johnson investing in Petworth. These are the condos going up above the Petworth metro. Above is a photo of Magic at the groundbreaking of the Park Place condos from 2007.

The article says: “The project, to be called Park Place, will include 161 residential units, both condominiums and rental apartments, 16,000 square feet of retail and an underground parking garage. The developers say 20 percent of the units will be dedicated as affordable units. The one and two bedroom apartments will average 860 square feet.”

Interesting that it says “both condominium and rental apartments”. Had anyone else heard about that? Anyway, great to have Magic Johnson involved with Petworth!
