Back on January 26th Mayor Fenty was nearby at 3813/3815 Georgia Ave., NW to celebrate the launch of the new Billy Simpson’s Restaurant (Ed. Note: not officially named yet and anticipating opening in 9 months) from the owners of Marvin. The good news keeps on coming for the resurgence of this section of Georgia Ave. Mayor Fenty, CM Bowswer (Ward-4), Chris Donatelli (Developer), Eric Colbert (Architect) and Tom Bogdan (Construction) were all in attendance to break ground for this new project.
It will be a 49 unit condo located at 3801 Georgia Ave, NW (at the corner of Quincy and Georgia). Units will include 1 bedrooms, 1bed + den, and 2 bedrooms (with prices ranging from roughly $300s – $400s. It will be a six story building with construction expected to take 16-18 months.
